The project aims to develop a quick, low-cost and efficient image-based methodology to update large scale maps of urban and rural areas starting from helicopter images.

CENTRIC (Centre for ExcelleNce in TerRItorial management and Cadastre) aims - in the long term - at the realization of the new Centre of Excellence on territorial management and cadastre in Romania. The future Centre will focus on related domains of great relevance, such as: 3D/4D geospatial data, linked geospatial data, land classification, remotely sensed data, mapping, etc. CENTRIC is funded under the EU H2020 Framework Programme - WIDESPREAD-2014-1 TEAMING.

CIEM (Cartographic Information Extraction and Management) deals with the automated extraction of geo-referenced data for a large variety of applications like urban and environmental planning, environmental monitoring, emergency assessment, change detection analyses, etc.

The investigation deals with automated image matching methods for the generation of dense and accurate point clouds from aerial and terrestrial imagery.

The project deals with the 3D surveying of dinosaur trackways and footprints by means of terrestrial photogrammetry and laser scanning.

The project aims to reproduce precise digital replicas of some of the beautiful etruscan tombs located in different necropolis using reality-based 3D surveying methodologies.

The project investigates the potential of high-resolution satellite imagery (WorldView, GeoEye, Pleiades, etc.) for mapping purposes. A testfield over the city of Trento has been realized to evaluate the potential of such images and the performances of processing solutions.

The project aims to solve the problem of missing (3D) digitized and well organized cultural heritage assets, which is one of the main priorities in the Strategy for Information Society Development in the Republic of Serbia. The project aims also to transfer know-how and best practices from EU to non-EU Member States.

The project wants to realize a methodology to integrate 3D surveying data with IR imaging to metrically evaluate heatis looses from building facades.

The project aims at the multi-sensor and multi-resolution 3D documentation of the UNESCO Maya site of Copan (Honduras) and at the realization of a 3D GIS-type tool to visualize and query multi-resolution archaeological 3D models online.

The project aims to process old aerial images from the period 1942-1945 over the Trentino region in order to derive 3D information and analyze the changes with the actual situation.

The project uses 3D surveying techniques (terrestrial photogrammetry and laser scanning) to document and monitor paintings. Furthermore it combines multi-spectral analyses to analyse painting layers. This combination is useful to fully document artworks as well as evaluate conservation conditions and plan future preservation activities.

The project aims to digitally model the Pompeii Forum integrating photogrammetry and laser scanning. The integration is realized to exploit the intrinsic advantages of each technique and to produce a multi-resolution 3D model of the archaeological site.

The project deals with the 3D surveying of prehistoric alpine shelters and artefacts for heritage documentation and valorization purposes. Terrestrial photogrammetry and laser scanning are employed to produce photo-realistic 3D models.

RAPIDMAP - RAPID MAPping - deals with Remote Sensing (RS) and GIS technologies for collecting and managing geo-information of disasters and damages. The project developed practical ways to process and integrate RS data in near real time and allow users to use those data soon after disasters by means of WebGIS tools.

The project is an interdisciplinary work with the aim of producing a multimedia exhibition with the Sarcophagus as primarily subject. Digital acquisitions and 3D modeling of the Sarcophagus, based on different technologies, were conducted to deliver highly detailed photo-realistic 3D representations of the Etruscan masterpiece for the successive multimedia purposes.

The research aims to develop a pipeline to semantically subdivide 3D models of archaeological finds in order to better analyse the heritage pieces and assign information stored in external databases.

3D city and landscape models are used to estimate the incoming solar radiation and evaluate the quality of the roofs as possible locator of photovoltaic panels.

Spherical photogrammetry uses spherical images and photogrammetric methods to survey and reconstruct in 3D various scenarios. The research deals with the automated orientation of spherical images before applying interactive restitution and 3D reconstructioons.

STEM - Sistema di Telerilevamento e Monitoraggio del Territorio e dell'Ambiente Trentino / Remote Sensing tool for monitoring landscape and environment in the Trentino region - is a project which aims to use Remote Sensing data and machine learning techniques for land management and environmental monitoring.

The project wants to digitally model the Law Code of Gortyna (Crete), the longest epigraphy text of the Greek civilization. The project investigates the best surveying method to face all the challenges of the heritage scenario.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) platforms (or RPAS - Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems) are nowadays a valuable source of data for inspection, surveillance, mapping and 3D modeling issues. UAVs can be considered as a low-cost alternative to the classical manned aerial photogrammetry, so new applications in the short- and close-range domain are introduced.
