    Laboratory for Computer Graphics and Geographic Information Systems (CG&GIS Lab) was formed in 1991 as a research laboratory of the Faculty of Electronic Engineering, University of Niš. Research conducted by members of the laboratory is focused towards geo-information science, information systems, software engineering, computer graphics systems and systems for data and knowledge management. Significant results from the last few years are related to interoperability, semantic information integration, ontologies, sensor Web, mobile/Web information systems, location-based and context-aware services, virtual reality, e-systems, security and protection of information.


    Development and implementation of specialized information systems and special purpose systems
  • Geographic information systems
  • Development and implementation of e-Services for e-Government, e-Learning, e-Business etc.
  • Sensor Web
  • Development and implementation of desktop, Web and mobile information systems and services
  • Database design and development
  • Information integration and implementation of interoperable systems, service oriented architectures (REST/SOAP)
  • Ontologies, semantics and their application
  • Technologies
  • Programming languages: C/C++, C#, Java, PHP, JavaScript
  • Microsoft technologies, frameworks and tools
  • Databases: Oracle, SQL Server, open-source DBMS
  • Mobile technologies for development of Android, Windows and iOS applications
  • Open-source technologies and tools for application development


  • Special purpose information systems – Multiple realized projects for Serbian Armed Forces from the domain of Geographic information systems and Command information systems.
  • GinisLS – Geo-information systems for local government, implemented as a GIS solution for support in public companies and local government offices. The solution consists of a desktop editor application with specializations for different companies, as well as a Web GIS portal for representation of publicly available geo-data (users: Vranje, Bujanovac, Niš).
  • GinisED – Geo-information systems for tracking and maintenance of the power distribution network. The solution includes integration with other systems (SCADA, DMS, Billing etc.) from the environment, desktop, Web and mobile application for field work (users: ED Jugoistok Niš, ED Elektrošumadija, Kragujevac).
  • GinisAVL – System for tracking a fleet of vehicles, implemented as a system for tracking public transport vehicles or as a generalized system for tracking any fleet of vehicles with the option of generating reports on demand (users: multiple companies in Niš).
  • HASIS – Hail suppression Information system for Republic Hydrometeorological Service of Serbia
  • MOWIS - mobile - Web information systems for tracking and managing mobile objects (vehicles, people)

Other information

    Since 2004 the laboratory is a member of Association of Geographic Information Laboratories in Europe (AGILE).
