CENAGIS is an infrastructure for research purposes, which was created as part of the project “Center for Scientific Geospatial Analysis, Satellite Computing with Testing/Certification Laboratories for Geomatics Products (CENAGIS)”. The Project was implemented by the Faculty of Geodesy and Cartography of Warsaw University of Technology from 2018 to 2023.
The infrastructure consists of two main components:
- advanced IT infrastructure that allows geospatial analysis and satellite calculations (spatial big data type),
- calibration/calibration/certification laboratories for measuring instruments used in geoinformation acquisition, and laboratories for testing geoinformation applications and spatial data.
The IT infrastructure is located in the Main Building of the Warsaw University of Technology (MERCATOR cluster) and in the Scientific and Didactic Center in Józefosław (ROMER cluster).
Onsite laboratories are available at the Science and Didactics Center in Jozefoslaw.
The aim of the CENAGIS Center
Who we are?
CENAGIS is intended to ensure, on the one hand, the improvement of the scale, quality and efficiency of geomatics research and the reduction of its costs (common infrastructure for many scientific centres), and on the other hand, to enable the commercialization of research by maintaining close relations with entrepreneurs at the stage of CENAGIS design and its use. The infrastructure is intended to allow for the development and testing of new products by companies, as well as to promote access to the technologies of consortium members and CENAGIS partners.
The Center is fully operational and operates as a unit of the Faculty of Geodesy and Cartography at Warsaw University of Technology.
The first stage of CENAGIS implementation was co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund under Priority Axis I, “Utilization of research and development activities in the economy”, Measure 1.1. “Research and development activities of scientific units” of the Regional Operational Program of the Mazowieckie Voivodeship for 2014-2022.
Amount of funding: approximately EUR 4,000,000. Own contribution: about EUR 1,300,000.
