In the past few months, the department has strengthened our already strong collaboration with the Technical University of Munich in Germany. Dr Klemen Kregar was a guest researcher at the Technical University of Munich (Technische Universität München) from September 15 to December 15, 2022. At the Department of Aerospace and Geodesy, he was actively involved in research and teaching at the Chair of Engineering Geodesy (Lehrstuhl für Ingenieurgeodäsie). The work focused on processing point clouds captured with terrestrial laser scanning for detecting deformations in the natural and built environment and automating scanning procedures.

During his visit, Klemen Kregar also participated in field exercises for master’s students in geodesy, which are held annually in the Reutte area in Tyrol, where they monitor movements and deformations around the Hornbergl peak above the Berwang ski resort for the Tyrol Department of Flood and Avalanche Control (Wildbach- und Lawinenverbauung). They measured changes in the positions of points on the unstable ground using GNSS technology, surveying a geodetic network, and terrestrial laser scanning. In collaboration with the Military University (Universität der Bundeswehr München), they established a new permanent GNSS station at the edge of a gorge.

Together with colleagues from Munich, he attended a seminar for doctoral students organised by the German Geodetic Commission (Deutsche Geodätische Kommission) in Clausthal-Zellerfeld, the highest-lying German university. At the seminar, the dominant theme was laser scanning and data processing, which is currently also emphasised by our faculty.
