GE-UZ Summer Schoool

The Summer School in Geoinformatics has been organized in connection with Tempus GE-UZ final review meeting. Summer School was open for students and staff from Uzbek partnership. The motto of this Summer school was: How GE-UZ enabling sustainable development in Uzbekistan? The programme consisted of two independent courses and lasted one week from 10 to 16 May, 2015. The first course aimed at “3D Laser Scanner Application for historical buildings” and the second one dealt with “GIS use in Environmental management”.


 1st Course: “3D Laser scanner application” had the following mission: “To save Uzbekistan’s cultural heritage buildings”. The aim of the course was to develop theoretical knowledge and practical skills in use of terrestrial Laser Scanning techniques for 3D building modelling. After successful completion, course participants gained knowledge about concepts, working principles and different applications of Laser Scanner and are able to apply laser scanner to various engineering problems and perform data processing techniques. Field work and data collection: TIIM campus for Laser Scanner testing, Pilot work and data acquisition – Madrasah of Barak-Khan is one of few architectural monuments on the territory of Hast Imam Square (Hazrati Imam) located in Tashkent city. Used software: Trimble Real Works software. Lead trainers: Utkir Shermanov (TIIM, Uzbekistan) and Milan Horemuz (KTH, Sweden).

 The mission of 2nd Course was: “Let’s do better decisions for a friendly environment”. The aim of the course was to provide participants with practical and methodological skills which make them capable to use main spatial analysis techniques of GIS in solving Environmental Management issues. After successful completion, course participants able apply concepts from GIS and remote sensing RS to facilitate monitoring and decision making in environmental challenges. Used software: ArcGIS 10.2, Idrisi. Data used in the course: Satellite images and maps obtained through online Geoportals, DEM and ASRTM for Central Asia, Topographic Maps. Lead trainers: Sherzod Rakhmonov (TIIM, Uzbekistan) and Christoph Traun (UNIGIS, ZGIS, Salzburg Austria)
