Geodesy in the collective perception is understood as an activity consisiting in studying the Earth's shape, geodetic networks establishing, mapping, border marking and real estate recording. The know ledge about input and possibilities of geodesy in building investments' realization process, as well as in construction of large machines and installations, is relatively modest even among interested building specialists. These structures are usually closely connected with geographical space and they have an important influence on social and biological environment of the region (e.g. hydroelectric power station - provides both employment and power, at the same time being a serious danger in case of natural calamity or damage of control system) - so information about them is connected in many aspects with geoinformation and with space information systems as far as technology of realization of geodetic and cartographic studies and exploitation of geodesic tools (like methodology,measurement technology, instrument technology are concerned. The goal of the project, being realized by the Institute of Engeneering and Industrial Geodesy of Warsaw University of Technology, is to create a prototype database of building structures, which are typical from the point of view of the tasks of engineering geodesy. These are structures as follows: architectural (i.e. buildings, shopping centers, renovation and reconstruction of historical objects) transport (i.e. roads, overpasses, train infrastructure, tunnels, bridges, airports) hydrotechnical (i.e. dams, hydroelectric power stations) machines and installations (i.e. turbines, gantries, rotary furnaces, ships, airplanes). Creation of a database is going to be preceded by studies on preparing uniform methodology of presenting consecutive stages of geodetic works for various objects as described above. The database is expected to be available by internet and is planed to be filled with the information collected from geodesic companies, which would like to present their realizations as well as from owners and users of engineering structures. Examples of modern solutions in the area of geodetic services for engineering investments realization is supposed to create a base for changes in the methods of teaching and presenting these issues in The Geodesy and Cartography Department of Warsaw University of Technology and in other Departments interested in such problems.
