FIG Commissions 5 (Positioning and Measurement) and 6 (Engineering Surveys) together with the Siberian State Academy of Geodesy (SSGA) organised a Workshop on “Innovative Technologies for an Efficient Geospatial Management of Earth Resources” 23-30 July 2009. The venue of the Workshop was on Lake Baikal in the settlement of Listvyanka, Russian Federation.

This Workshop was attended by about 40 participants from Germany, Canada and Russia representing the Administration of Novosibirsk Region, universities, associations and various companies. Among these companies following should be mentioned: GIS Association, Optech Incorporated, GAZPROM VNIIGAZ Ltd., "NPK Jena Instrument Ltd.", Altex Geomatica Company, FORES LLC, Territorial Planning Institute “GRAD” Ltd., Irkutsk State Technical University, JSC “Independent Resources Company”, Irkutsk Railroads Design Institute, “ITE Siberian Fair”, etc.

Technical programme included 20 presentations in four technical sessions. “MORION” company was the general sponsor of the Workshop. The participants and guests were welcomed on the opening ceremony by Prof. Dr. Alexander D. Afanasyev (Vice Rector for Scientific Studies, Irkutsk State Technical University), Prof. Dr. Lothar Gruendig (FIG WG 6.3 Chair), Prof. Vladimir Seredovich (SSGA, Vice Rector for Innovative Activities), Mr. Boris I. Ivlev (Administration of Novosibirsk Region, Director of the Foundation for Assistance to Small Innovative Enterprises (FASIE) for Novosibirsk Region), Dr. Sergey A. Miller (President of GIS Association), and Prof. Anatoly L. Okhotin (President of the Baikal Union of Mining Surveyors, Head of the Department of Mine Surveying, Irkutsk State Technical University).

A comprehensive set of topics related to the theme of the Workshop were discussed – in an area where many new satellite systems and other sensing technologies are being rapidly improved and are being supportive in many applications for society. Amongst these topics are:

  • the prediction of earth’s surface and engineering structures deformation and movements in areas of tectonically and technogenically active hazardous zones using geodetic observations;
  • terrestrial laser scanning systems, their usage in architecture, civil engineering and industry;
  • GIS technologies for planning, construction and planning, construction, operation and maintenance of oil-and-gas, industrial, power industry plants and infrastructure;
  • provision of geo-information for problem solving in ecology, geomorphology, geology and geophysics;
  • real time GNNS applications in development of oil-and-gas fields;
  • Airborne Lidar, SAR and digital photogrammetric technologies and their applications in geodesy, civil engineering and emergency situation prediction
  • earth remote sensing

The main results and outcome from the workshop are:

  1. Main target groups are educational bodies and the oil and gas Industry. In main fields the rapid development of new innovative technologies forces the need of short terms meetings over the world for better exchange of the knowledge about the efficient usage of them.
  2. To achieving the millennium goals the rapid technological changes in the main geodetic fields like geodesy, photogrammetry, GIS, remote sensing, CORS infrastructure and wide era DGNNS augmentation systems, has to be also a central subject in the modern educational programs. The current state is that this is very well done in the universities in Novosibirsk, Irkutsk, Moscow, and St. Petersburg.
  3. Force the interdisciplinary exchange for developing new methods and algorithms for interpretation of the results of monitoring systems and close loop technology guidance.
  4. Force the development and decrease the time between the scientific pilot projects studies and the implementation for commercial use.
  5. Force the development and decrease the time for introducing of new standards for 3D navigation and data processing.

A great attention was given to data integration receiving from airborne lidar survey and remote sensing to solve the problems of Earth’s resources monitoring. The presentations made by the participants (SSGA, ‘BaikalGeoService’ and ‘Optech’ companies) were devoted to the key problems of sharing data of aerial and terrestrial laser scanning including mobile terrestrial complexes as well as aero photographic, thermal and hyperspectral data. Most participants emphasized, that only a combined approach can provide the real solving of Earth’s resources management problems.

The problems of geospatial data acquisition used for surveying, engineering and prospecting tasks were also discussed. Mr. Vyacheslav T. Zalutsky (PhD, Senior Geodesist, Irkutsk Railroads Design Institute, Department of Explorations, Irkutsk) emphasized in his presentation “Some Geodetic Technologies of Explorations on the East-Siberian Railway” how they have combined, tested and used geodetic, surveying and GIS technologies for needs of railway branch.

The Siberian State Academy of Geodesy has published the technical programme and workshop proceedings on paper and a CD-ROM (including presentations). The presentations can also be seen on FIG Commission 6 web site.
