High Precision Survey of Ports

High Precision Survey of Ports

The constant technological evolution in Computer Vision and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), as well as the miniaturization of sensors, may lead to surveys with high-quality spatial information and products for several applications. The use of UAV systems for High Precision Survey of coastal areas is not only a flexible and attractive solution to produce accurate and high qualitative spatial data and geo visualizations but also is a significant contribution to cost effectiveness of monitoring.

Marine Spatial Planning

Cross-border Cooperation for Maritime Spatial Planning Development (Thal-Chor in Greek)

The strategic project “Cross-border Cooperation for Maritime Spatial Planning Development” was approved for funding under the Cross-border Cooperation Programme “Greece–Cyprus 2007–2013” on the 1st call for proposals for strategic projects, on July 2013. The project target was to develop a methodology for Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) and apply it in selected areas in Cyprus and Greece. The project was designed to prepare both countries for the imminent implementation of the EU Directive on MSP. (more…)
Costal Mapping

Costal Mapping

Developing methods and processes for data acquisition and mapping of the coastal environment.

Over the last decade, spatial analysis of satellite imagery has improved considerably, yet the information collected using satellite remote sensing is still insufficient for monitoring medium and small changes in the Earth's surface. The team uses Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) to collect remote sensing data, capable of capturing the complexity of coastal morphology in very high resolution for the creation of both two-dimensional and three-dimensional representations.

3D Mapping

3D Mapping after earthquake

3D Mapping of the Vrissa region affected by the earthquake of Lesvos on 12/06/2017 Following the devastating earthquake of June 12, 2017, and the extraordinary conditions prevailing on the island of Lesvos the work of 3D mapping has been initiated in the affected area of the village of Vrissa. The project is being carried out by a specialized interdisciplinary research team from the University of the Aegean with the use of the appropriate technical equipment. (more…)
