Article
Only a few high precision studies of lava and tephra during simultaneous explosive and effusive activity have so far been undertaken. We carried out such measurements by analysis of a unique and homogeneous multi-temporal dataset of high-spatial resolution satellite optical images. Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) and orthophotos (with 1- and 0.5-m-...

Historical cartography is an important source of geographic information for diachronic studies. The Italian geodetic datum from the second half of the 20th century are well known and used, while the reference systems used previously do not have a certain documentation also because they were developed by the military geographical institute, which at...

The sinkhole known as ‘Pozzo del Merro’ possesses unusual, geological and natural features, providing an important opportunity to study the geological and hydrological characteristics of the area, and, at the same time, to preserve an ecosystem inhabited by rare species. The site has been the object of numerous studies carried out by scholars from...

A photogrammetric survey of a unique archaeological site is reported in this paper. The survey was performed using both a panoramic image-based solution and by classical procedure. The panoramic image-based solution was carried out employing a commercial solution: the Trimble V10 Imaging Rover (IR). Such instrument is an integrated cameras system t...

Actually complex underground structures and facilities occupy a wide space in our cities, most of them are often unsurveyed; cable duct, drainage system are not exception. Furthermore, several inspection operations are performed in critical air condition, that do not allow or make more difficult a conventional survey. In this scenario a prompt meth...

Started in 2009, the COSMOCoast project aims to the investigation of the potential of Remote Sensing in support to the management of coastal areas. Particular attention is paid to the contribution of data acquired from the COSMO-SkyMed constellation, in view of their frequency of acquisitions and ground resolution; in particular this paper aims at...

During 2002, as part of a collaboration between the National Civil Protection Department and the University of L'Aquila, a methodology for assessing the vulnerability of an urban center was developed. The methodology considered the urban territory as well as the complex of physical and functional relationships of the urbanized territory and not a s...

The correct georeferencing of remote sensing imagery is a fundamental task in the photogrammetric processing for orthoimages, DEM/DSM generation and 3D features extraction. In this paper we focus on the georeferencing of pushbroom sensors imagery with rigorous model, that is the well known approach based on the collinearity equations. In particular...

The correct georeferencing of remote sensing imagery is a fundamental task for orthoimages, digital elevation models (DEMs)/digital surface models (DSMs) generation and 3D feature/object extraction. In this article we focus on the georeferencing of pushbroom sensors imagery, in particular single images collected by EROS A and QuickBird satellites,...

An analytical protocol based on X-ray spectroscopic measurements (XRF and Fe and Ti K-edges XAS) has been applied to evaluate the mineralogical phase composition of dust trapped in deep ice cores. Information on the insoluble dust composition and local and species-selective information as oxidation and coordination states has been obtained to recog...

Recent events reveal that the use of very high resolution satellite images for "early damage assessment" after seismic events can be very useful and call for deeper investigation by the scientific community. In the present study five monoscopic panchromatic images covering the historical city-center of L'Aquila, GCPs and DEMs from medium scale cart...
Article
Full-text available
The methodology used to evaluate urban vulnerability considers the urban territory as well as the complex of physical and functional relationships of the urbanized territory and not a simple summation of elements. One of the characteristics of this examination is that it allows for a simultaneous analysis of the multiple factors involved in vulnera...
Conference Paper

Earlier experimentations showed that some of the effects of a seismic event on buildings can be identified using change detection and multispectral classification algorithms (Ajmar et al., 2010). The main change detection algorithms, are not always effective where there are new buildings because there is the possibility that ground with the same ra...
Conference Paper
The site identified as "Pozzo del Merro" (Well of the “Merro”) according some authors is a “Cenote”, according to others is a carsic flooded deep, because they consider “Cenote” only a hollow of a certain wideness. In both cases the site, with its 392 meters of deepness, is the deepest carsic flooded hollow in the world; obviously between those alr...

Earlier experimentations showed that some of the effects of a seismic event on buildings can be identified using change detection and multi-spectral classification algorithms [1]. The main change detection algorithms, are not always effective where there are new buildings because there is the possibility that ground with the same radiometry of a ro...

A few years ago high resolution satellite imagery became available to a limited number of government and defense agencies that managed such imagery with highly sophisticated software and hardware tools. Such images became available to civil users in 1999 with the launch of Ikonos, the first civil satellite offering a spatial resolution of 1 m. Sinc...

Interest in high-resolution satellite imagery (HRSI) is spreading in several application fields, at both scientific and commercial levels. Fundamental and critical goals for the geometric use of this kind of imagery are their orientation and orthorectification, processes able to georeference the imagery and correct the geometric deformations they u...

By the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) nearly worldwide digital height models have been generated. The SRTM height models can be used for several applications, but it has gaps in mountainous regions, caused by the radar layover, and is not so accurate in steep areas. In addi-tion the grid width of 3 arcsec, corresponding to approximately 92...

A key issue for mapping information from space is the geometrical processing of satellite data. The remote sensing community usually adopts for processing two different models: the physically based sensor models and the generalized sensor models. In the first ones the involved parameters require the knowledge of the specific satellite and orbit cha...

Cartosat-1 satellite, launched by Department of S pace (DOS), Government of India, is dedicated to stereo viewing for large scale mapping and terrain modelling applications. This stereo capability fills the limited capacity of very high resolution satellites for three-dimensional point determination and enables the generation of detailed digital el...

The Leave-one-out cross-validation (LOOCV) was recently applied to the evaluation of High Resolution Satellite Imagery orientation accuracy and it has proven to be an effective method alternative with respect to the most common Hold-out-validation (HOV), in which ground points are split into two sets, Ground Control Points used for the orientation...

Space geodesy data are used to verify whether plates move chaotically or rather follow a sort of tectonic mainstream. While independent lines of geological evidence support the existence of a global ordered flow of plate motions that is westerly polarized, the Terrestrial Reference Frame (TRF) presents limitations in describing absolute plate motio...

The wide use of space geodesy techniques devoted to geophysical and geodynamical purposes has recently evidenced some limitations due to the intrinsic Terrestrial Reference Frame (TRF) definition. Current TRFs are defined under hypotheses suited to overcome the rank deficiency of the observations with respect to the parameters that have to be estim...

This paper proposes a new rigorous model for the orthorectification of high resolu-tion imagery. Firstly, the model was developed and tested in the most general situation, that is considering the asynchronous EROS A satellite; now it is under extension in order to be able to process imagery acquired by other high resolution synchronous sensors (IKO...
