The Laboratory of Geodesy and Geodetic Applications was established in 1974.. The lab contributes to studies and research in the field of theoretical and applied Geodesy in Civil Engineering. Emphasis is given to measurements, evaluation, and interpretation of deformations of the ground, and of modern and ancient constructions, due to seismotectonic and geotechnical effects. The lab is equipped with high level instruments (100Hz GNSS receivers, robotic total stations, laser scanners, and control equipment, such as LVDT, 1-D oscillation generators, etc.).
