Survey Laboratory

In several decades of activity, the Topography laboratory has transmitted the principles of topographic measurement to thousands of students in the civil, construction and environmental area.

In addition to the classic optical mechanical instrumentation, now historical, the Topography laboratory is equipped with modern precision electronic instruments: levels, classic and motorized total stations, GNSS receivers, inertial platforms IMU, LiDAR, with the related processing software.

The laboratory supports research on satellite positioning, inertial positioning and integrated Mobile Mapping System. The laboratory includes the permanent GNSS station which is part of the inserted EUREF network, from 1996

The laboratory carries out instrumental adjustments, customizations and creation of accessory instruments and prototypes for research and external consultancy.
