Rapid Mapping

Foam on Lake Maggiore

Arpa Piemonte and ITHACA have triggered a cooperation initiative in order to identify the causes of the foam phenomenon that is taking place since last year on the Maggiore Lake.

ITHACA will make available georeferenced remotely sensed images that Arpa Piemonte will use for the phenomenon mapping, in order to understand what causes it and to detect the possible sources.

The shooting is realized from an airplane by means of a system that integrates digital cameras in the visible, in the infrared, and thermal cameras with GPS receivers and it constitutes a first fundamental action for the calibration of tools to be used for the subsequent acquisition of images.
