GENERAL CARTOGRAPHY AND GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS SERVICE
The Cartography and Geographic Information Systems Service has been devised as a back-up service for the Research and Training that the University would mainly offer to teachers and researchers who work with spatial information. The main objectives are to:
- Make available to the university community and other groups in society (scientists, public administration, companies and private individuals) a Territorial Data Bank and extensive digital cartographic support - both basic (topography, satellite images, orthophoto maps, etc.) and specific (thematic maps of geology, vegetation, soils, crops and their use, soil uses, urban development, etc.).
- Provide an infrastructure for the digitalization and publishing of cartography and maps, in addition to help carrying out scientific and informative presentations (posters, panels, programmes for congresses, conferences, etc.).
- Lend support to research and development in all types of project related to the measurement, depiction and dissemination of Heritage.
