The organisation and management of data is one of the research fields of the Center. 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.
They 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 Technology Park.
The aim 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.
