Geodesy and Mine Surveying
This paper covers the activities of creating a database for the study of modern crustal movements in the region of Sofia and Southwestern Bulgaria, including data from GNSS measurements of the geodynamic network and the results of their processing and analysis, data from permanent stations and archive data from Synthetic-aperture radar, processing and obtaining interferometric images.
The local archive of GNSS measurement includes: manual sketches of the location of the points; log sheets of the measurement with information for the height of the antenna, start and end time of measurement and operator name; raw GNSS measurements and data in RINEX format. Data from permanent stations are extracted from external repositories such as IGS or SOPAC are also included in the archive.
The local archive of interferometric images contains scenes from the Sentinel-1 satellite downloaded from the repository of the European Space Agency's Science Center. Data for a digital terrain model are extracted from external sources, such as SRTM or ASTER repositories are also included. In order of the envisaged integration with GNSS data, it should be borne in mind that both types of data must be in the same reference system. Measurement campaigns in the geodetic network are carried out in a certain period of time and these periods are used as reference, which allows comparisons to the information extracted from interferometric images. The available experience shows that there is a good correlation between the two types of data.
The processing and analysis of the obtained results is another important part of the local archive. The database thus created contains important information and allows for a more accurate analysis of ongoing geodynamic processes in the study area and obtaining reliable information for better regional planning from local authorities.
