- Digital orthophotos in colour on any scale;
- Vector cartography on any scale;
- Digital terrain and surface models;
- Processing of satellite images;
- Topographic surveys and stakeouts;

The projects in which the Cartography Centre has been involved include production of the 2007 occupancy and soil use map in mainland Portugal for the Territory Department.
