EARTH OBSERVATION AND MONITORING

Remote sensing is offering many sensors and techniques to observe and monitor our planet with very high frequency and resolution. We investigate methods and develop solutions for image-based multi-temporal analyses like landslide monitoring, landscape analyses, rapid mapping, etc.

Current and closed projects under this research line are listed below.

The project aims to produce an accurate, detailed and photo-realistic 3D model of the 3 Cime di Lavaredo (Drei Zinnen / Three Peaks) in the Dolomites, Italy. The model will be used for geological analyses and visualization purposes.

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.

Dynamic Light is an Interreg - Central Europe project which focusses on reduction of CO2-emissions and enhancement of energy efficiency in public lighting. The project will demonstrate the process of how a city can implement energy efficient lighting starting from the 3D models, GIS data mining and analyses, simulation, strategy development, financial models, procurement rules, implementation and evaluation.

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 (LandslidE MOnitoriNg And Data intEgration) focuses on mass movements and particularly on landslides. LEMONADE, funded by EUREGIO, will consider and integrate different platforms (satellite, UAV, land-based), sensors (imaging, ranging, radar, etc.), techniques (photogrammetry, laser scanning, etc.) and algorithms to deliver an innovative fusion methodology applicable also to other application fields.

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 activity analyzes the potential of multispectral imaging for various applications fields. Particularly, terrestrial and UAV acquisitions are acquired and processed in the heritage and agricultural field to derive "invisible" information useful for better investigations, restoration, precision farming, etc.

The project aims to investigate the potentialities of oblique aerial camera systems for building 3D reconstruction, cadaster applications, structural damage classification, land administration services, etc.
