In October, the HSE Faculty of Geography and Geoinformation Technology launched the Geodata Centre. In addition to developing its own research and commercial projects, the Centre provides auxiliary educational services related to the collection and processing of spatial data, performs geographic analysis, captures video and photo using drones, and processes data received via remote probing of the Earth.
