Short biography

Anka Lisec is an associate professor and researcher at the University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Civil and Geodetic Engineering – Department of Geodetic Engineering. Her research interests are focused on geoinformatics and spatial analysis, including land administration, with a special emphasis on 3D geospatial data modelling. In addition to her pedagogical work and research activities, she contributes to the transfer of knowledge to end-users in the surveying and geospatial domain, both nationally and internationally.


About the University of Ljubljana

The University of Ljubljana was founded in 1919 and is the oldest and largest university in Slovenia, with approximately 38,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students. It employs about 6,000 higher education teachers, researchers, assistants and administrative staff in 23 faculties and three art academies. UL has several bilateral agreements with foreign universities and is a member of many international associations, and it is very active in national and international R&D and educational programmes. The University encourages interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary studies, exchanges results of achievements in science and art with other universities, research institutions, and industry, thus contributing to the Slovenian and world knowledge treasury as well contributing to the transfer of these achievements and knowledge to various users.


About the Faculty of Civil and Geodetic Engineering

The Faculty of Civil and Geodetic Engineering at the University of Ljubljana with the Department of Geodetic Engineering also has its roots in 1919. The faculty offers, among other things, study and research programmes in the field of geodesy and geoinformatics. In Slovenia, it is the only institution with bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programmes in this field (geospatial data acquisition, including mass data acquisition using satellite remote sensing, airborne and terrestrial technologies; geospatial data modelling and GIS, including semantic integration of geospatial data sets; geospatial data analysis and decision making based on geospatial data; land and real property information systems, etc.). Teachers and researchers are active members in various national and international associations such as ISPRS, FIG, ICA, IAG. Faculty of Civil and Geodetic Engineering has been successfully involved in many EU research programmes, e.g. 6h and 7th Framework Programme, Horizon2020, COST, Leonardo da Vinci, ESPON, INTERREG. The members of the faculty are further actively involved in life-long learning activities, including organisaing various knowledge-transfer events in collaboration with the Surveying and Mapping Authority, Chamber of Engineers and other entities in the geospatial domain.
