GILAB - Innovative solutions based on ICT and Geoinformatics

GILAB DOO is a young start-up company dedicated to developing innovative solutions based on ICT and Geoinformatics. The name of the company stands for Geographic Information LABoratory. Founded by four Ph.D. holders and experienced researchers, GILAB is built on a long-term experience in spatial data processing, geographic information modeling and visualization. We combine advanced ICT skills with exceptional knowledge of state-of-the-art technologies in the domains of Earth Observation, Geographic Information Systems, data assimilation and web cartography to make innovative web based solutions aimed to improve people's life and work. The experience that people gathered in GILAB gained in a number of European and national scientific and innovation projects represents priceless advantage in the company's work. Moreover, we have close cooperation with the University of Belgrade thus being constantly in contact with the latest scientific achievements and technology.

GILAB DOO is founded within the Business Technology Incubator of Technical Faculties Belgrade.

Our mission is to design web services based on spatial data and tailored to specific users' needs. We aim to deliver "smart" solutions in a number of domains including: agriculture, urban ecosystems, energy, environment and wherever a spatial aspect is of any importance.

GILAB team made web mapping client for "Soil property maps at 250 m", made upgrade of REST SoilGrids API. We are currently developing the new version of Soilinfo-app.

GILAB team is going to develope CONTECA solution, see more in video

Dr Nemanja Branisavljevic
Founder

Dr Nemanja Branisavljevic is an assistant professor at Department of Hydraulic and Environmental Engineering at the Faculty of Civil Engineering, University of Belgrade, where he is responsible for the tutorials on two courses, Fluid Mechanics (undergraduate course) and Measurements in Environmental Engineering (graduate course). His main research area is environmental data quality with the focus on development of automatic data validation algorithms. He developed number of algorithms, applied on real-life case studies, where the most significant one is the automatic data validation and quality check of measured water related variables in Belgreade's sewage system. He participated on several local scientific projects, and one FP7 project during his stay in UK on a post-doctoral studies in 2013/14 (PREPARED). He has more than 20 papers in scientific review magazines and conferences.

Aleksandar Blagotic
Web Application Developer

Implementing web cartography/web mapping solutions using modern webdev tools, with special focus on front-end development and UX. Tools used in development process include popular JS-based web-mapping libraries like OpenStreetMaps, OpenLayers3, GoogleMaps API, front-end frameworks: Bootstrap and AngularJS, Cordova for mobile app development, SASS (w/ Compass) for CSS preprocessing, JS/jQuery and Rails with a hint of Django for back-end development and Yeoman/Gulp as developer toolkits. Strong emphasis is given on JavaScript and Node.js-based tools.
