NATIONAL PROJECTS

CARTODD

CARTODD project involves the development of a high resolution cartographic support through remote sensing technology: LIDAR – Light detection and Ranging.

UAS INNOVATIVE SURVEY AND MONITORING MODEL FOR COLONIALLY BREEDING WATERBIRD SPECIES FROM DANUBE DELTA BIOSPHERE RESERVE" - ACRONYM: UAS-BIRDD

The UAS-BIRDD project envisages a strong interdisciplinary approach in order to identify, evaluate, design, experimentally tests and determine all necessary aspects, to define, establish and demonstrate a full cycle functional model and dynamic information support system/toolset for wildlife management and environment research.
