We are developing some applications in different GISs to manage Avalanche risk protection, fire risk protection, ortophoto production, GPS data planning.
Our favorites GISs are GRASS GIS by USACERL and Mapinfo with Vertical Mapper but we work also on Arc-view, Idrisi and on any kind of GIS.
We have developed an Italian Tutorial of GRASS.

We are working on different research themes:

Avalanche risk protection integrating GIS and Dendrochronological Techniques

Digital Analysis fo Multitemporal Aerial Images for forest and Landscape Change Detection

Automatic forest area recognition using GIS image analysis capability

Ortophoto production

Sustainable Development and Mapping

GIS and GPS in forest management

Fire risk protection

What we have written about GIS
