3D Optical Metrology - 3DOM

The 3DOM research unit is actively involved in accurate measurements and reality-based 3D reconstruction problems. A consolidate know-how has been acquired in the development of metrology software and methodologies based on terrestrial, UAV, aerial and satellite photogrammetry as well as on triangulation and time-of-flight optical active sensors (e.g. laser scanners). The research group is devoted to geo-referenced and geospatial data analyses, 3D monitoring and modeling of landscapes, sensor and data integrations, environmental change detection, man-made structures digital reconstruction, derivation of metric and semantic information from images and range data, mapping and surveying, geomatics algorithms design and implementation, thermal studies and analysis, mobile mapping, GIS and cartography applications, cultural heritage documentation and digital preservation. 3DOM is hosting MSc and BSc students as well as PhD fellows for stage and visiting period. Topics of research are available, please contact us for more information.

The 3DOM research group is working on the optimization and development of methods and tools for virtual reconstruction and visualization of natural and man-made sites or objects, with great attention to the automation of photogrammetric methods, the fusion of 3D models acquired with different techniques (at different point densities and measurement accuracies) and the development of new data processing pipelines. Researches include also the characterization and investigation of passive and active sensors for metrology applications. The main applications of the group deal with reality-based 3D surveying and modeling applied to environmental monitoring, mapping, cultural heritage, geology, architectures, virtual reality, visualization, etc.
