Chair of Geoinformatics and Real Estate Cadastres
Katedra za geoinformatiko in katastre nepremičnin (KGKN)
The Chair of Geoinformatics and Real Estate Cadastres is covering a wide and fast-developing area of geoinformatics, as well as real estate cadastres and real estate management. The domain of the Chair evolved to the present contents within the former Chair of Mathematical Geodesy and Geoinformation that was renamed in 2001 to the present name. The development of the Chair’s areas has been largely influenced by international development guidelines of the geodetic field of science that was to embrace the areas of surveying and spatial data acquisition; and the main connecting area should be the field of spatial data management aiming to support spatial decision making. Fast development of information and GIS technology, as well as increased requirements of the society with respect to the quality spatial data that support various decision procedures regarding space, is bringing several challenges and dynamics in educational, research and professional field of our activities.

In the field of education, the mission of the Chair is education of professionals who are able to solve problems in practice and as well as in research work, in the field of geoinformatics and real estate administration, which includes implementation, maintenance, protection, standardization and presentation of spatial data, application of GIS technology within the framework of spatial data infrastructure and real estate administrative systems, establishment and maintenance of real estate cadastres and their (re)arrangement, study of economic, social, legal and political role of the spatial data infrastructure and real estate cadastres.
Education activities of the Chair are therefore predominantly related to the geographical information systems‘ knowledge, spatial and statistical data analysis, land and real estate management, real estate recording, as well as the organization of works and project management. We try to convey the knowledge in ways that ensure its consistency with the development of geodesy and international science, as well as with the needs of the organizations that employ the majority of the geodesy professionals.
Within the framework of the Bologna Reform of the study programs, the members of the Chair took part in establishing updated, contemporary study program of Geodesy and geoinformation.
Research and professional activity
The research activity of the Chair is focussed on the field of development of contemporary geoinformation solutions and algorithms for spatial data analyses that support spatial decision-making. Special emphasis is given to the development of the real estate administrative systems, optimization of the procedures dealing with cadastre real estate management and to the assurance of quality real estate databases within the spatial data infrastructure.
The members of the Chair present the achievements of the research and professional work in internationally recognized journals as well as in national and international scientific and professional conferences. The professional field of the Chair is wide and interdisciplinary, therefore the members of the Chair are active in various national and international professional associations, such as the Slovenian Association of Surveyors, Chamber of Engineers of Slovenia, Slovenian Institute for Standards – Technical Committee for Geographical Information, Slovenian Association Informatika, Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia – Council for Environmental Statistics and Council for Statistics of Real Estate, International Association of Surveyors (FIG), International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS), European Academy EALD, FAO (United Nations), Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) etc. Members of the Chair cooperate, both on national as well as international level, as (co)organisers of scientific and professional events, summer schools, as well as Editors, members of Editing Committees of professional journals and Conference Proceedings. We are also actively involved in the international environment in the field of Higher Education development related to the geodesy and geoinformatics.
In the research and consulting field, the Chair is included into national and international projects. Special emphasis is placed to the bilateral cooperation; among other, quality bilateral collaboration was established (through Erasmus and other bilateral agreements) with TU Wienna (Austria), HUT Espoo (Finland), TU München (Germany), NMBU Ås (Norway), University of Belgrade (Serbia, KTH Stockholm (Sweden) and Iowa State University (USA).
In 2016, Assoc.Prof. Radoš Šumrada received the Award for Lifetime Achievement from the Association of Geodets in Slovenia, for his outstanding achievement to the development of geodesy and geoinformation in Slovenia.
