The GIS resources are constituted of hardware and software facilities essential for operating studies using geospatial data.


A strong focus is on the workflow of

A) gathering,
B) analyzing and
C) visualizing of geospatial 3D data.



a) the 3D data gathering is done by 3D field data surveying with:

1) Terrestrial Laser scanner (Riegl LMS-Z620)

2) Nikon 300D Camera (photogrammetric analysis, stereographic photos)

3) Leica Viva GNSS (two Rover, one Base)

4) 9 Panasonic FZ-G1 MK4 Tablets with GNS 2000 sensors, Win 10, Field MOVE + ArcGIS


b) for data analysis following hard- and software is available

1) Three 3D processing PC’s

3D Visualization Planar 2010 M,

+ PC DELL Precision T5400 4 XEON CPU 2,5 GHz, 8 GB RAM, Disk 700 GB


2) software





Riegl Laser Scanner software

Kubit (Tachycad, Photoplan, PointCloud, hylasFM)

MOVE (Information for academic license)




c) and for data serving and visualization:

1) GIS Server (ArcGIS Server 10.3) with 10 TB RAID system

Dell PowerEdge T630, 32 GB RAM, 2 * 2,3 GHz, 10 cores

Windows Server 2012,

2) A0 Scanner Graphtec CS510 Pro

+ PC 4CPU 3GHz, 1GB RAM, Disk 70 GB, XP 32 bit

3) 3D Cave Data Visualization and GIS Computing

For detailed specification see

4) scape Pro 55 UHD 3M (4K/UHD Multitouch-Tisch)
