Research Interests

Research Unit of Geodesy and Geographic Information Systems was founded in September 2006, aiming to teach and conduct research on issues related to:

  • Capture and design parts of Natural Earth Surface with modern geodetic instruments and using appropriate software.
  • The introduction and use of GIS and design applications in environmental issues.

Participation in Research Programs and Projects

  • 1991- 2002 Participation in NTUA projects:  participated in 12 SRSE NTUA projects, including a full range of activities, from collecting , processing and analysis of data, to the organizing, coordinating and supervising of the scientific team.
  • Scientific supervisor of research projects at the TUC
  • July 2008 – October 2011 “Development of Indices for the recording of the Environmental Quality of city streets, using GIS – GPS”, Basic Research project, 2008, TUC.
  • Organizational and Scientific Supervisor of Workshops: “The Capacities of the Arc GIS platform”, 21/10/16, TUC. In cooperation with representatives from the Data Marathon Systems company.
  • “Surveillance technologies and environmental protection, an interdisciplinary approach”, 13/01/17, co organized by the TUC, TCG – Department of Western Crete, and the Law Association of Chania.

Distinctions and Awards
