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.

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 aims at developing a reliable methodology for the processing of aerial imagery for the derivation of high quality 3D data and energy audit. The partners will thus deliver innovative procedures and advanced solutions for the distribution of useful services to citizens and public administrations based on spatial information.

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.

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 (Trento Citta' Fortezza - Festung Trient - Trento City Fortress) aims to create cartographic and multimedia products related to Trento City Fortress, i.e. the city of Trento fortified by the Austro-Hungarian army at the beginning of 1900 to defend it against a possible Italian attack (WWI).
