GIS and Remote Sensing
Technological Platform (DBEM GT) - Analysis of geospatial data, Spatial modelling. Developing methods for Geographic Information Systems and analysis of Remote Sensing data Spatial Modelling and Landscape Genetics. Dissemination through WebGIS and Web Services.
The mission of the GIS and Remote Sensing unit (Piattaforma GIS & Remote Sensing) is to develop and provide multi-scale approaches for the description of 2-, 3- and 4-dimensional biological systems and processes. Core activities are the acquisition, processing and validation of geographical data, the support for the scientific analysis and management of physical, ecological and geographical data, collected within research projects or monitoring activities. The Geographic Information System (GIS) approach allows the description of continental down to landscape scale systems such as including the 3D-reconstruction of small sampling sites. We focus on the geostatistical analysis of such information layers, the creation and processing of indicators, and the production of ecological, landscape genetics, eco-epidemiological and physiological models. The group pursues actively the development of innovative methods and their implementation in a GIS framework including the analysis of proximal and remote sensing data and time-series.
