Here below you can find the list with the winning teams of the Geomatics on the Move competition.
The projects are grouped in two categories based on the following tracks:
Bathymetry from UAV Imagery and Machine Learning
A scalable and transferable webservice for shallow waters mapping. This webservice will facilitate the detailed and accurate monitoring and mapping of the sensitive coastal areas, especially in times of climate crisis, reducing the cost and the complexity of these small- and large-scale mapping surveys. The webservice will take as input georeferenced UAV images or 3D point clouds and will deliver refraction corrected data and 3D point clouds, accompanied by the semantic information of the scene.
Autonomous Ground Surveying
An autonomous, extendable, vehicle to survey large open areas.
The idea revolves around the creation of an Autonomous Vehicle (AV), guided by high accuracy GNSS utilising SBAS, that is extendable with various sensors needed for ground surveying. The AV provides a complete solution for data capture and can survey large, open landscapes, such as agricultural fields rapidly and autonomously.
Monitoring land surface properties with Galileo Reflectometry
The proposed surveying solution integrates Galileo‐R receiver’s onboard drones, airplanes, or satellites for monitoring land surface properties, including soil moisture and freeze/thaw. The resulting reflectivity products will be validated and/or combined with Copernicus products (e.g., Sentinel data).
Advanced Remote Detection and Analysis System
The Remote Advanced Detection Analysis System-ARDAS workflow applies a multi-technologies methodology (high-accuracy positioning systems, UAVs, SfM techniques, cloud computing environment) by a sequential step-by-step procedure: high-accuracy remote sensing, real-time data transmission, photogrametry, and application of AI algorithms.
Tree Parameter Detection from UAV LiDAR Point Cloud
Study introduces to a practical UAV LiDAR data acquisition and registration process to generate a high-density point cloud which is then used to assess tree parameter detection efficiency in managed mixed species old growth forest conditions in Latvia.
An innovative sensor for remote monitoring of structural movements and deformations
ALPHAMONITORING BOX is based on an innovative, precise, reliable, small, wireless, adaptive, robust, automatic, autonomous, low energy consumption device remote monitoring connected in real time to quantitatively monitor the stability of different sensitive targets and their surroundings using other connected devices.
The UNI-Collect app gives more people the option to start digital surveying and make surveying available for a broad audience by enabling surveying through a smartphone. The app is connected to a Cloud platform to allow easy import and export of data. The app allows the creation of personalised CRS through a PROJ library, to generate reports in multiple formats, the use of RTK for accurate positioning or the internal location for the smartphone with improved accuracy thanks to Galileo.
The eHermes receiver
An EGNSS mapping platform for precision viticulture
A miniaturized GNSS mapping platform which combines all the sensors (cameras, GNSS antenna, Inertia Measurement Unit) used on mapping vehicles such as Google© car, TomTom© cars and Apple© cars. This low-cost hardware solution enables 3D Aerospace to deploy the eHermes receivers on a premium mass market and collect geotagged pictures as quickly as possible and as much as possible.
