UralGIS LLC, a small innovative enterprise of South Ural State University, celebrates its 5th anniversary. During this period our scientists performed online monitoring of territories by using WEB cartographies and GIS technologies. The company has implemented and keeps developing a number of strategically important projects for governmental authorities and enterprises of Russia, as well as of Cuba, Abkhazia, India, and other countries around the world.
UralGIS LLC unique technologies allow performing aerial photographic survey to obtain photorealistic 3D models and high-accuracy terrain relief of mining facilities. Now UralGIS scientists develop and implement ultramodern geoinformation systems, which allow predicting natural calamities, optimizing work in the agriculture and many other sectors of industry.
Director of Geoinformation Systems Research and Education Center and Head of UralGIS Valentina Maksimova is confident that the future belongs to geoinformation technologies:
“The instruments which are widely used around the world today and cover various sectors of the world economy, such as supercomputer and cloud technologies, Big Data, Data Mining, and geoinformation systems – these are the know-how, which allow to clone, simulate, add on our reality in the context of society globalization.”
Among big projects of SUSU scientists we should mention a unique interactive geoportal of the Chelyabinsk Region created from scratch. At present the UralGIS employees jointly with the University of Guantanamo are developing a similar Russian-Cuban project, while allows to online trace certain climatic events on the island and predict their progression. Colleagues from India showed great interest in GIS developments of SUSU, and would like to create yield maps based on satellite photos.
