Laboratory Profile

The Remote Sensing and GIS Laboratory at the University of Aegean (RSLUA) is located at beautiful island of Lesvos Greece and it is hosted at the first floor of the Xenia B' building of the Department of the Environment. It is a member of the network: European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories (EARSeL) and develops activities in the area of geospatial information science and technology (GIS&T) such as: Remote Sensing, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Photogrammetry, Surveying, Cartography, Digital Terrain Models, GPS, and new technologies LIDAR and IFSAR. Its destination is to provide education and research support to most specialized fields of the Department of the Environment which use of GIS&T methods in accordance to the Department interdisciplinary program. Most laboratory activities deal with: (a) Collect geospatial data and information with methods of: Remote Sensing, Photogrammetry, and New Technologies, (b) Manage geospatial information using GIS, (c)  Use geospatial information for environmental applications, (d) Interconnection of environmental models with GIS.


The Remote Sensing and GIS Laboratory was established officially in 1995, It belongs to the Department of the Environment and it is located in the city of Mytilene of Greece.
