The coursebook "Cadastral Engineering" is aimed at developing the professionally oriented communicative competence of students majoring in city cadastral engineering, metrology, standardization and certification, and electronic engineering. The book can be used by undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate students, along with post-doctorate fellows and a wide variety of learners whose proficiency level is at least B1.
The article reveals the problem of convergence of direct and inverse problems in Earth Sciences, describes the features and application of these problems, discloses analytical features of direct and inverse problems. The convergence criteria and conditions for convergence were presented. This work is supported by the Grant of the Government of the Russian Federation for support of scientific research, implemented under the supervision of leading scientists in Russian institutions of higher education in the field "Space Research and Technologies" in 2011–2013.
The paper deals with the issues of measurement traceability based on uncertainty of measurements as an integral part of specific measurement technologies based of new information system. A short review of papers devoted to measurement traceability problem in modern conditions is described. It is proposed to further expand a concept of "special technical means" in carrying out of measurements. Example of the information system of the measurement traceability support is highlighted.
This International Conference "Positioning Planning in the Global Crises" aims to bring together researchers, scientists, practicioners and students to exchange and share their experiences, new ideas, and research results about all aspects of Urban, Regional Planning, and discuss the practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted.
Proceedings of papers presented at the Joint Workshop on Borderlands Modelling and Understanding for Global Sustainability carried out under the auspices of three international associations of researchers: 1) ISPRS - International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing; 2) IGU - International Geographical Union; 3) ICA - International Cartographic Association.
Industrialisation and social transformations changed the landscapes of the Soviet Arctic and stimulated discussions about the models of its domestication. Numerous industrial towns in the Soviet Far North in the 1930s were established next to Gulag labour camps. The attempt of technical, social and visual re-conceptualisation of urban space in the Soviet Arctic related to several reforms of the post-Stalin period. This chapter analyses how Leningrad architects since the 1950s used modernist urban projects for the realisation of their professional and personal ambitions trying to create a new conception of a “normal city” in extreme climate. While most were not implemented, their appearance shows the shift of the attitude toward the North in the USSR as well as the controversial changes of experts’ position.
