Welcome to the webpage of the Geo-Environmental Cartography and Remote Sensing Group (Cartografia GeoAmbiental y Teledeteccion – CGAT). We are a multidisciplinary research group created in 2000, at the Department of Cartographic Engineering, Geodesy and Photogrammetry of the Polytechnic University of Valencia (Spain). Our main interests are focused on the development of geoinformation technology tools based on remote sensing, GIS and LiDAR processing to analyse and map the territory, and their application in the study of the environment and natural resources in its broadest sense: forestry, agriculture, urban and coastal areas.
In addition to the development of several research lines and projects, and the collaboration with administration and industry in technology transfer and outreach, a substantial part of our activities is focused on education and teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels.
Previous activities, courses and workshops:
Workshop: LiDAR technologies for forest structure assessment (3-4 November, 2016).
Course: Teledetección aplicada a la actualización de cartografía de ocupación del suelo: técnicas de clasificación orientada a objetos (del 30 de junio al 3 de julio de 2009).
