Universities, R&D Groups and Academic Networks

GISTAM is a unique forum for universities, research groups and research projects to present their research and scientific results, be it by presenting a paper, hosting a tutorial or instructional course or demonstrating its research products in demo sessions, by contributing towards panels and discussions in the event's field of interest or by presenting their project, be it by setting up an exhibition booth, by being profiled in the event's web presence or printed materials or by suggesting keynote speakers or specific thematic sessions.

Special conditions are also available for Research Projects which wish to hold meetings at INSTICC events.

Current Academic Partners:


An initiative of the Spanish schools of Geomatics with the purpose of spreading the internationally backed professional and academic discipline. If you do not know what it is Geomatics is your chance to meet the sectors where applied and technologies used.
With the support of the College of Engineering Geomatics and Surveying and collaborating companies.

Internet of Data for Environmental Monitoring Project

IDEM is a project that intended to demonstrate how the installation of an innovative monitoring system of odour air emissions in risky contexts (landfills, composting plants, farms) could actually contribute to improve the environmental conditions, the well-being of the population and the general performances of organizations causing odour air emissions.

In IDEM the geomatics group of the Politecnico di Torino integrates the system with the local updating of the maps, as a support for analysis and processing. For this aim, a procedure was tested using photogrammetric surveys from UAV (Unmanned Aerial Systems) and the integration of the results in existing maps.

Moreover, mobile sensors measuring pollution values (developed by another group of PoliTO) were mounted on bikes and mapped for extracting information about air quality (in form of pollution maps or local data).

The resulted data were archived in a standard-based GIS, for which a specific data model about air quality was realized starting from INSPIRE data model and integrating it with other standards and ontologies about the touched fields (urban and landscape environment, air quality, etc.). The GIS were used for:
  • real time application of sensor measurements;
  • Geospatial data analysis of environmental phenomenon;
  • Data sharing between project partners;
  • Communication and dissemination in form of webGIS (
