Keywords: Remote Sensing Geomatics Thermography

Emanuele Mandanici addresses the applications of Geomatics, especially Remote Sensing, to the following topics,

  • Environmental monitoring for sustainability
  • Energy efficiency in urban areas
  • Cultural Heritage preservation

Currently, the main activities deal with the development of aerial and satellite thermography as a tool for energy performance assessment of buildings at block or town scale. In particular, methods and algorithms required for geometric and radiometric calibration of images are studied, in order to produce surface temperature maps of adequate accuracy.

Further research activities deal with remote sensing techniques to extract thematic information from multispectral and hyperspectral imagery for environmental applications, such as geologic mapping, land use change, risk management and water quality assessment. In particular, ongoing researches focus on the characterisation of abandoned mining sites, both from the point of view of contamination studies, and for the identification of secondary materials in stock-piles.

Finally, the processing of satellite images, the generation of digital surface models by photogrammetric techniques and their integration with ground surveys are applied to support archaeological researches.
