The geospatial research and teaching activities at UTU stem from easy access to digital geospatial data, software and hardware combined with access to cloud-based computing environments. These include a wide range of digital GIS and image processing software with laboratory and mobile installations, and the use of mobile devices, such as laser scanners, UAVs, GPSs, GNSS receivers, as well as smart phones and tablets.
