Geoinformatics

The pages lead to a wonderful world of space science. The fascination of exploring the earth and space – what a combination to satisfy the unsolved aspects flaming the curiosity of us, humans. Some content is compiled and collected that is made available for further reference for a learner. Happy times ahead…!

  1. Learn GIS, especially Quantum GIS and its applications with examples.
  2. Learn about GNSS, the GNSS basics and application of U-blix as well as RTKLib that are open source applications to log and decode the GNSS signals;
  3. GPS application Data logs from U-Blox receiver station and rover for trials
  4. Learn Remote Sensing (under construction)
