Whistleblowing: send your report online

May 09, 2024

With regard to the compliance with Legislative Decree 24/2023, Geocart S.p.A. has activated an additional reporting channel by filling out a form that can be found directly on the company website. The form includes a series of questions aimed at acquiring the information needed to represent an exhaustive picture of the situation so that the reports are detailed and complete with all the elements useful for the reconstruction and verification of the reported fact.
The aforementioned channel was also established with a view to ensuring the protection of the confidentiality of the reporting party, the facilitator (natural person who assists the whistleblower in the reporting process), the persons involved and in any case mentioned in the report, as well as the content of the report and the related documentation.
For more details on the subject matter of the reports and their management, please read the "Whistleblowing Policy" available in the "Business Ethics, Compliance and Whistleblowing" section on the homepage.

Whistleblowing: protection, safeguards and safety in the foreground for those who work with us

December 15, 2023

Geocart S.p.A., in compliance with the regulatory provisions introduced by Legislative Decree 24/2023, has established a process for reporting violations of national and European regulations, as listed in Article 1 of Legislative Decree 24/2023, ensuring that whistleblowers, also known as "whistleblowers", have adequate protection through the provision of specific protection measures. In this way, the Company defines the rules for the communication, management and processing of such reports in order to comply with the legislative provisions and to disclose the process followed for the management of reports and for subsequent checks.

GEOCART at the Canada-Italy Business Forum on artificial intelligence

October 20, 2021

After the opening of the new North American headquarters in Montreal, Geocart will be present at the next Italy-Canada Business Forum to talk about the new research and development activities based on artificial intelligence in the fields of earth observation as well as environmental and infrastructure monitoring.

In Canada and Quebec, the green economy is the most important axis of the economic recovery strategy. Environmental impact is therefore a key topic and a development priority shared by Western countries, which is being addressed by examining the potential environmental damages caused by the raw materials' processing cycle, starting from extraction, through transport and transformation into energy and finished products, up to the potential environmental damage generated by final elimination or disposal.

The effective management of power grids' maintenance is strictly related to environmental protection and can contribute to contain environmental impacts through the predictive analysis of the damage caused by the electrical infrastructure's interference on vegetation and, more generally, on local plants and animals.

One of the main causes of forest fires, which are our planet's green lungs, is related both to the poor infrastructure maintenance and the tree interference with power lines. In 2018, in the United States, the wildfires that ravaged some states and caused more than 100 victims and $12 billion in damage, were provoked by obsolete power grids and poor control over the vegetation growth near cables.
Effective networks monitoring and control can prevent natural disasters, which cost human and animal lives, as well as money, and impoverish the landscape, due to the deforestation of lands that will take decades to recover. Moreover, it allows to optimize energy saving in electricity transmission and offers an efficient service that minimizes the occurrence of prolonged interruptions in electricity distribution to citizens and enterprises, which is essential for any business and economy.

Artificial Intelligence is both an accelerator and facilitator in improving these activities. Geocart is investing in the research and development project "Geo A.I.", which involves a qualified team of experts working on different fields of application that aim to link Artificial Intelligence to Earth Observation. The development of a software platform will enable us to carry out automated analyses of environmental and infrastructures monitoring and control operations. Machine learning and automatic recognition of data and images will make it easier for operators to quickly identify geometries, network elements (such as cables and supports) and criticalities, in order to draw up detailed maintenance, emergency plans and rapid responses.
The automatic detection of anomalies through the development of machine learning algorithms is crucial to enhance network security and environmental protection, granting customers a further improvement in service delivery times and cost benefits. The software will allow to completely automate some processing methods, such as the classification of the point clouds coming from laser scanner surveys.

The analysis of lidar data, orthophotos and satellite images through the A.I. software platform will also provide regular and accurate information on the state of vegetation in the vicinity of the infrastructures. In addition to the automatic detection of high-risk points, the tool will include several features that will allow to perform a detailed predictive analysis. The software will automatically calculate growth rates for each classified tree species, and assign priorities and associated cost estimates, to ensure more aware management of infrastructure monitoring activities and activate timely and constant control, even remotely.

In addition, application of Satellite Technologies combined with Artificial Intelligence, and in particular the automated optical and radar image processing, will provide an innovative system for protection of citizens and the planet. The software platform will allow to monitor the stability of strategic infrastructures (roads, bridges, dams, railways) and territorial transformations (drainage basin variations, deforestation, landslide, subsidence and soil deformation phenomena) in relation to climate change, extreme phenomena and anthropization.

The rationale behind the project, therefore, is offering customers a valid tool supporting decision-making processes, to reach a perfect balance between effectiveness and efficiency: maximum service reliability combined with resource savings, environmental impact mitigation and protection of individuals as well as the environment.

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".
