InD3.1- Data Acquisition Report
This document aims to offer a detailed description of the remote sensing platforms that will be used for the multiscale data acquisition of the transport networks within the case studies of SAFEWAY project.
The remote sensing technologies will be divided in the document into two groups:
- satellite technologies, equipped with radar and optical sensor, to monitor a wide area obtaining a synoptic view of the state of the infrastructures and of the surrounding area;
- terrestrial remote sensing technologies, to obtain geometric and radiometric data from the surveyed environments with high accuracy and resolution.
The decisions on which specific technologies will be used in SAFEWAY, and to what extent, should meet the necessities of the owners or operators of the infrastructures within the case studies defined at the beginning of the project. From these end user needs, a number of monitoring scenarios in the different case studies can be defined, and a clear data acquisition protocol can be addressed.
