Group Coordinator: Luca Ghiraldi
Working Group: Balestro, Cadoppi, Ghiraldi, Giardino, Perotti: GIS and Geomatics

IT “A” (Geomatic application for evaluation and management of Piemonte geoheritage) provided the geothematic teams with the mobile digital tools and SRG2 software (customized interface for GIS and mapping) for data collection and management.

A Geographical Information System has been structured by Geositlab (GIS and Geomatics Laboratory, University of Torino).

Multiscale spatial and temporal analysis have been performed with the technical support of ImaGEO spin-off of the University of Torino, by mean of geomatics techniques such as remote sensing, digital and traditional photogrammetry, GPS and laser scanning, virtual globes.

The ontological framework for the geological map of Piemonte region (1:250,000 in scale) has been discussed within a specialized team including researchers of the Informatics Dept. of Torino Univ. and the CNR-IGG.
