The research group on Soil Spatial Inventory Techniques (ORBit) is responsible for the education, research and services related to the spatial inventory of soil properties in support of strongly differing applications. The expertise comprises:
- Mobile proximal soil sensor configurations for the investigation in a non-destructive way of soil properties;
- Geophysical prospection techniques for geoarchaeological and environmental applications;
- Geostatistical interpolation and simulation techniques;
- Sampling strategies for the characterisation of soil-related properties;
- GIS-techniques for the processing of sensor measurements.

The marine research is focused on the development of a geophysical methodology for soil inventory in the western Belgian coastal plain and a landscape-archaeological study of the Zwin area.
