organisation and management of data is one of the research fields of the
Institute. After collection, the data
needs to be organised, edited and made accessible. Driven by multiple projects,
we have developed a data infrastructure and an environmental database which
make use of open-source technologies.
both conform to international standards and protocols and are interoperable and
freely accessible. The environmental database can accommodate any kind of observation,
including data from ground-based sensors as well as from laboratory tests. The
services related with these heterogeneous data, together with the research on
Sensing technologies, will be the core activities within the Laboratory of
Technologies for Environmental Monitoring which will operate at the NOI
of the laboratory is to process high quality services in the area of
environmental monitoring and to deliver technological solutions which in turn
will benefit various social and economic aspects such as Alpine Technology,
agriculture, natural disasters and tourism.
