Technological development, as well as greater and more diverse requirements in various processes of utilizing and managing spatial data, opens up new opportunities and represents a challenge in collecting, analysing and managing spatial data.

Understanding the requirements of design engineers and investors, legal regulations, familiarity with work methodologies as well as work instruments and equipment, as well as perfecting the practical application of processes in collecting spatial data out in the field, represent a continuous challenge which requires a vast knowledge of geodesy, analysis and processing of geodetic measurements, geoinformatics, hydrography, satellite geodesy, photogrammetry and remote research, engineering geodesy and spatial data management.

The methods for collecting and processing spatial data are developed in parallel with the accelerated development of technology. Technological development also leads to the development of instruments and sensors for collecting data. Hence, we consider it essential in tracking this development and in introducing new instruments, sensors and work methodologies into our daily operations. Nowadays, besides GNSS devices, total stations and levellers, we also use equipment for underwater measuring of channels, the creation of georeferencing video recordings and equipment for creating digital orthophotographs and, consequently, digital terrain models (DTM). The mobile platforms we use are automobiles, small boats and unmanned aerial vehicles.

Gaining an overview of the area upon doing designs and informing the investor also often requires evaluating complex legal and property rights and, subsequently, conducting various spatial surveys using the software for managing and utilizing spatial data. Even when planning a project, gaining an insight into the ownership rights can, more often than not, accelerate the design process, therefore, making the planned projects more financially cost-effective for the investor, more acceptable to the public and, consequently, to various institutions involved in monitoring the quality and certification of the project documentation.

As part of the design team, we are also responsible for obtaining various permits in the field of our work from institutions which are under the jurisdiction of the State Geodetic Administration, the Ministry of Construction and Physical Planning, the Ministry of State Property, the Ministry of Agriculture and the Ministry of Internal Affairs. To obtain various permits, in the process of drawing up the entire project documentation, we draft geodetic projects, subdivision surveys for the purpose of subdividing or merging cadastral lots and stake-out surveys; we also conduct the supervision of geodetic works and prepare various geodetic survey reports.

Every single day we are committed to advancing our work by preparing geodetic maps upon which design engineers can quickly and easily gain insight into the terrain, and thereby facilitating a more efficient way of drawing up technical documentation, as well as a quicker acquirement of necessary permits and delivery of feasible projects to the satisfaction of end-users.
