Article
Accurate coastline position is of fundamental importance for many applications concerning coastal zone monitoring, management , and planning. For example, coastal erosion phenomena require a careful and continuous monitoring due to the dynamic nature of the coastline which can undergo sudden and significant changes in position and shape over time....
Conference Paper
Coastline extraction techniques from multispectral satellite images are of great interest for protection and monitoring of coastal areas. In this regard, the Sentinel-2 satellites can give a great contribution thanks to their wide coverage of the earth’s surface. These images can be processed by GIS software, so as to detect the sea from all the re...
Chapter
Different techniques can be applied for shoreline acquisition. Direct survey, based on GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) or total station, permits to obtain 3D information that is useful for the correct definition of the coastline also in consideration of the tidal effects. However, the acquisition of long stretches of coast using in-situ s...
Article
Geomatics techniques and applications to process lidar data, large-scale map, stereo-pair airborne photos, and Very High Resolution satellite imagery allow building very detailed Digital Terrain Models. Indeed, in studies characterized by a smaller reference scale, lower resolution models are required to handle a smaller amount of data. Therefore,...
