Research fields:

River dynamics
• Dinamics of meandering rivers, controls of river planform types.
• Geodynamical and neotectonic settings as specific controls of the river planforms.
• Change of the behaviour of the Tisza River (Hungary) and its tributaries, in connection with the uneven subsidence of the Great Hungarian Plain.

• Parametrizing of geodetic datums for the GIS and GPS applications.
• Coding of map projections and projection systems in GIS packages.
• Geocoding: integration of different geoinformatic data sources (historical and modern maps, digital databases, GPS measurements, satellite imagery).
• Development and analysis of digital elevation models.

Remote sensing
• Environmental analysis by interpretation of satellite imagery.
