Research collaboration between the University of Gävle (HiG) and Lantmäteriet (LM)
On April 2016, the first deliberation took place between the University of Gävle (HiG) and the Swedish mapping, cadastral and land registration authority (LM) to determine the areas in which research areas could and should develop. The authorities were represented by the vice president of research at HiG and the General Director of LM. As a result of this initial deliberation, it was decided to work on the strategies and relevant research areas. There is a research of common interests within both authorities in the areas of geodata (including property information) and geodesy. After two initial deliberations (April and May 2016) and a workshop (June 2016), three areas of strategic research have been crystallized:
1. Automated decision making
2. Information supply in Geodata area (Change detection, image analysis, 3D modelling, BIM and crow-sourcing)
3. Information presentation and visualization
This project was designed based on research area no. 2.
