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
Sustainable Development and Mapping
GIS and GPS in forest management
Fire risk protection
have written about GIS
