Geocart partner of the project "BARI MATERA 5G"

May 25, 2018

Today, in Matera and Bari, the experimentation about Digital Tourism & Virtual Reality has started, set up for the Bari Matera 5G Project, where Geocart and Digital Lighthouse companies took part as partners.

Bari Matera 5G is the project with which TIM, Fastweb and Huawei won the tender of the MISE for testing the new 5G technology in two cities with the collaboration of partners of excellence, including, precisely, the two companies from Basilicata.

The application of Turismo Digitale & Virtual Reality realized involves the virtual visit of some cave churches of Matera in a multiplayer context that, thanks to 5G network, allows you to "live" some of the main tourist attractions of the city through an immersive solution where participants of the two cities are united in a single virtual visit.

The solution offers the possibility to move freely in the foreseen areas, get close to the walls or objects available and manipulate them, thanks to the use of Virtual Reality viewers. The experience has been activated simultaneously in the two cities of Matera and Bari, through interactive ways that allow the visitor to meet and interact with other visitors physically located in places physically distant from the one in which it is located, as well as listen and follow the directions given by a real tour guide of the city.

With this experimentation, In which the two companies of Geocart Group participated, providing technologies and know-how in the sectors of remote sensing, computer graphics and augmented virtual reality, a further step is taken in the context of activities aimed at enhancement of cultural heritage and experimentation with an innovative tourism concept.

Specifically, It's possible to take a digital tour of some cave churches in Matera, in particular the Church of S. Nicola dei Greci, the site "Cripta del Peccato Originale", the Church of "S. Maria degli Angeli" and the Church of "Madonna delle Virtù".


April 16, 2018

We wish to remember a great professional and, above all, a friend with whom we have developed many ambitious projects for over 15 years. It was exciting to work under the guide of one of the greatest Italian seismologists and engineers.

On April 13, 2018, we have lost a great man who, with his semplicity, his desire to share experiences and skills, his joy of living the job as a continuous challenge to be faced in a group, has taught many technicians and professionals the sense of responsibility and the importance of the role that belong to the figure of the engineer.

When in 2000s, Maurizio Leggeri assumed the role of technical director of Geocart, he was already one of the leading experts in earthquake engineering at an international level and co-founder of the National Department of Civil Protection.

Among the founders of CGIAM, Center of Integrated Geomorphology for the Mediterranean Area, he held the role of President from 1988 to 2012 and, subsequently, that of Honorary President.

After graduating in Civil Engineering in 1957, he specialized in Steel Construction, Geotechnics and Foundations, Seismic Analysis and Dynamics of Structures. The high level of his technical and scientific expertise led him to teach in several Italian and international universities including the University of California in Berkeley and the University of Missouri.

Maurizio Leggeri has designed, in collaboration with the INGV National Institute of Geophysics, the first seismometric network of the Basilicata region, covering between 1994 and 1995 the role of President of the Provincial Committee of Civil Protection and the position of external Assessor of the Province of Potenza, with responsibility for Urban Planning, Regional Planning, Soil Protection and Civil Protection.

The engineer has taught all those who have met him, as a person and as a professional, the love of knowledge and the courage to overcome obstacles. He has transmitted a principle that many people have made their own: we must study the environment in all its components to improve people's lives.

Maurizio Leggeri leaves an extraordinary legacy and his disappearance creates a void in who has had the opportunity to appreciate in him the intellectual strength, the scientific value, the love for freedom and moral tension.

Goodbye Maurizio.

New collaboration with the CTBTO

Jun 27, 2017

The collaboration between Geocart and the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) continues with a new contract. The aim of the current contract is to design and develop a customized, flexible and modular software interface to facilitate the processing of airborne multispectral data. These data are acquired to survey for surface features that may indicate the detonation of an underground nuclear device.

Timely delivery of data products derived from airborne multispectral acquisition is fundamental to operations, hence the need for a well-defined workflow that ensures that all necessary steps have been completed and that data quality can be assured. Geocart has been tasked with developing this system in the form a user friendly software interface. The software has been designed by Geocart engineers to meet two major requirements: to facilitate workflow management of airborne data and to monitor the progress and implementation of data processing.

Geocart participated in the first CTBTO airborne multispectral field test in 2011 and since then has contributed to various events including experts meetings as well as designing and integrating the first operational CTBTO multispectral system.
