Current methods for collecting spatial information from, e.g. crime scenes, historical excavation sites or construction sites, sometimes have significant limitations. Our approach is based on a modular, adaptable system that can be equipped with multiple sensors, an intuitive presentation and processing of collected, heterogeneous data. The generated model can be stored in a structured manner and supplemented with additional information such as place and time, whereby a continuous signature procedure is used.

The European project SeaLiT has developed a set of innovative tools for supporting maritime historians in digitising, curating and exploring archival sources of maritime history. The tools are the result of the interdisciplinary work between maritime historians of the Institute of Mediterranean Studies of FORTH and researchers and data engineers of the Centre for Cultural Informatics of the Institute of Computer Science of FORTH.

Airborne information gathering can benefit crisis and disaster management by allowing authorities to quickly obtain an overall operational picture and gain in-depth insights into specific aspects of the situation. Developments in the field of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and the associated sensor technology are opening up a wide range of application areas, helping authorities and organisations tasked with security to reduce the operational risks. These areas of application are being investigated in the AREAS research project.
