Group UPV6

The Geo-Environmental Cartography and Remote Sensing Group (CGAT), is a multidisciplinary research group created in 2000, in the Department of Cartographic Engineering, Geodesy and Photogrammetry of the Polytechnic Universitat of València (Spain). Our main interests are focused on the development of geoinformation technological tools based on remote sensing, GIS and LiDAR processing for the analysis and mapping of the territory, and its application in the study of the environment and natural resources in its broadest sense: forest, agricultural, urban and coastal areas.

Our main lines of research are focused on the following aspects:

Updating of geographical databases on land use and land cover from high resolution remote sensing images and LiDAR data using object-based classification techniques.
Forest structure analysis and fuels mapping from point clouds (LiDAR, TLS, UAV,…).
Estimation and mapping of live fuel moisture content from remote sensing and meteorological data.
Monitoring of shoreline and coastal areas and by remote sensing and point clouds.
Multitemporal analysis of urban fragmentation and relationships with socioeconomic variables.
