Meeting with project management TEMPUS
During the International Science and Technology Symposium “Geoinformation environmental monitoring: GPS and GIS technologies” (12-17 September 2011, Alushta, Crimea) met with the management of the project TEMPUS (511322-2010-SE-JPCR) “Geographic information technology for sustainable development in Eastern neighbouring countries”. The meeting was attended by Huaan Fan (Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden), Vitalie Dilan (Tiraspol State University (UST), Moldova),Dietrich Schroder (Stuttgart University of Applied Sciences (HFT), Germany),Iurii Karpinskyi (Kiev National University of Construction and Architecture (KNUCA)), Kornyliy Tretyak (Lviv Polytechnical National University (LPNU)).
The meeting discussed the following issues:
- Review of procurement of equipment for the GIS laboratories;
- Courses on GIS, which will be held at the State University of Architecture and Construction Yerevan, Armenia;
- The organization meeting of curriculum and analyzing data according to pre-processed forms;
- Discussion of student exchange under the project.
As a result of the meeting prepared a protocol on the work and following a plan that was sent to all partners of the project.
International Training Courses on GIS. Valencia (Spain)
From 4th to 17th of April 2011 the Training Courses on GIS were held in the Polytechnic University of Valencia under the framework of the Tempus project “Geographic Information Technology for Sustainable Development in Eastern neighboring countries”. Representatives of the Institute of Geodesy participated in this event.
Ihor Kolb and Lyubov Babiy (chair of photogrammetry and geoinformation), Yulia Holubinka (chair of cartography and spatial modeling), and Mariia Malanchuk (chair of cadastre of territory) represents those chairs of the Institute of Geodesy where subjects concerning on GIS are very important.
Main themes of lectures and practical exercises were studying of theoretical bases of GIS, practices with ArcGis and introduction to new development of Spanish scientists – geographic information system of open source gvSIG.
Also scientists and teachers from Moldova, Armenia and Kiev participated in the courses and all had possibilities to know about structure and studying conditions of the Polytechnic University of Valencia, visited laboratories of GIS and geodetic equipments.
Additionally, the study visit to Catalonian Cartographic Institute in Barcelona was very interesting and substantial. And, of course, there were a lot of exciting excursions, trips and meetings, unforgettable walk trips by narrow streets of ancient Valencia, flowers, orange trees, sea, and sun.

TEMPUS program “Geographic information technology for sustainable development in Eastern neighbouring countries”
On December 17th-20th the first working meeting of partners of TEMPUS program “Geographic information technology for sustainable development in Eastern neighbouring countries” was conducted in the Armenian State University of Architecture and Construction in the city of Yerevan. Representatives from Germany, Spain, Moldova, Ukraine, Armenia and project coordinator, representative from Sweden had discussed aspects and problems concerning realization of this program.
In the work of Ukrainian delegation were representatives of two universities. From Lviv Polytechnic National University: director of the Institute of Geodesy professor Kornyliy Tretyak and lecturer of the chair photogrammetry and geoinformatics Lyubov Babiy; from Kiev National University of Construction and Architecture head of the chair geoinformatics and photogrammetry professor Yuriy Karpinskyi.
During the meeting the planned activities had been revised, special attention was paid to activities of the first project year; also some organizational and financial details had been corrected. In resolution of the meeting the importance of the results of the project implementation for education in the field of geoinformation technologies and the necessity of consideration of opinion of all stakeholders in each partner country in the field of geodesy, cartography and geographic information (teachers, scientists, postgraduates, students, representatives of national agencies, enterprises of all forms of ownership dealing with geoinformation systems) were emphasized.
Since January 2011 in the frame of TEMPUS project «Geographic information technology for sustainable development in Eastern neighbouring countries» and with support of Lviv Polytechnic National University the English courses for teachers and scientists of the Institute of Geodesy have been started.
The purpose of these courses is to rise the professional English level for following active participation in the project activities and in other international activities of the Institute of Geodesy. High level on English is necessary as in the project the retraining of teachers and scientists on the intensive training courses on selected geodesy and GIS topics solely in English and also participation of lecturers and teachers of the Institute of Geodesy in to modernization of existing and creation of new curricula including development of new teaching materials together with colleagues from Sweden, Spain, Germany, Moldova and Armenia is planned.
