Profile

Born in 2002 out of the aggregation of 11 municipal companies operating in Emilia-Romagna, first corporation of its kind nationwide, over time Hera has embarked on a journey of consistent and balanced growth, incorporating other companies active in the same areas. Hera, publicly listed since 2003, is now among the nation's largest multi-utilities, working mainly in the environment (waste management), water (aqueduct, sewerage and purification) and energy (electricity, gas distribution and sales, energy services) sectors. Within the panorama of public services in Italy, the Hera Group's leadership can easily be recognised in a few figures: almost 9,000 employees who meet the needs of 4.3 million citizens in 330 municipalities in Emilia-Romagna, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Marche, Tuscany and Veneto.

Proposal

Planetek Italia is an Italian company, established in 1994, which employs 50 men and women, passionate and skilled in Geoinformatics, Space solutions, and Earth science. We provide solutions to exploit the value of geospatial data through all phases of data life cycle from acquisition, storage, management up to analysis and sharing. We operate in many application areas ranging from environmental and land monitoring to open-government and smart cities, and including defence and security, as well as Space exploration and satellite missions. The main activity areas are: Satellite, aerial and drone data processing for cartography and geo-information production; Continuous monitoring with satellite data of Earth’s surface, infrastructures, work sites, urban dynamics or marine coastal areas in support of decision-making and operational activities Design and development of Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDI) for geospatial data archive, management and sharing; Design and development of real-time geo-location based solutions, through positioning systems such as GPS/Galileo/GNSS and indoor location systems; Development of software for the satellite on-board data and image processing and for ground segment infrastructures.

Benefits

  • Continuous monitoring of areas subject to subsidence or landslides
  • Updated knowledge and immediate insight of land and infrastructure stability
  • Total area monitoring and high precision measurements for accurate displacement trend analysis
  • Reduced costs and increased efficiency in network operations and maintenance
  • Millimetric measurements of ground displacement also record movement velocity and rate of acceleration

The complexity of modern urban environments has led to the introduction of 3D Land Information Systems (LISs), which tend to replace traditional 2D LIS architectures for the purposes of urban planning and regeneration, land administration, real estate management and civil development. Both the need for 3D visualization of the geometry of buildings in various time instances through the years and the need for acquisition of 3D models in various levels of detail (LoDs), which not only fulfill the requirements of the various users but also they speed up the visualization process, are obvious. Thus, additional dimensions, that is, for time and scale, need to be supported by a modern LIS. This service introduces a 5D modelling pipeline that may be adopted by a multi-purpose LIS for the selective creation of 3D models of an urban area in various time instances and at various LoDs, enriched with cadastral and other spatial data. The methodology is based on automatic change detection algorithms for spatial-temporal analysis of the spatial changes that took place in subsequent time periods, using image orientation, dense image matching and structure from motion algorithms, the procedure requires photogrammetric stereo plotting, implements procedural modelling and relies on the availability of overlapping aerial and terrestrial imagery, ground control points and cadastral information.

NEO monitors solar panels throughout the Netherlands using deep learning methods. Solar panels are detected using various resolutions of satellite and aerial imagery. The panels are digitalized by the algorithm and related to 3D-roofs based on the AHN (Dutch national height model) to calculate zenith and azimuth angles. This data, combined with data such as solar power, allows NEO to estimate the power output for each object. Solar panels are also provided with parcel and address information and statistical reports, so customers can easily apply the data and relate it to internal registrations.
