-MIMOSE FIRB2012         

"Sviluppo di modelli innovativi per il monitoraggio multiscala degli indicatori di servizi ecosistemici nelle foreste Mediterranee"
The project MIMOSE (Development of innovative models for multiscale monitoring of ecosystem services indicators in Mediterranean forests) is aimed at developing innovative multiscale approach and tools for monitoring Ecosystem Services (ES) provision in Mediterranean forest habitats, within the framework of the following key priorities areas of Horizon 2020: climate regulation (e.g. carbon sequestration, regulation of water flow) and renewable energy production (e.g. bioenergy production).
The main objective of the project is the mapping and assessment of Ecosystem Services and their changes through time according to different forest management scenarios.

Project for the standardization and normalization of geographic database concerning Vallombrosa forest (Florence, Italy) to implement an on-line GIS system. The project was born to support research and didactical activities of the Faculty in Vallombrosa 
Contract with VIVA "Consorzio per la valorizzazione ambientale delle grandi infrastrutture viarie" (the consortium for environmental valorization of great transportation facilities), for monitoring activities, based on remotely sensed data, of the environments interested by new highway construction
National project founded by Ministry of Scientific and Technological Research to study the influence wood plantations against desertification processes in Mediterranean environments

A series of projects to study the evolution (in time and space) of landscape in Tuscany since XIX century until today. The projects are based on GIS tools and remotely sensed data, the final aim is to analyze trends in landscape changes in order to model its possible future development

Researches on forest monitoring using remote sensing data with high and very high spatial resolution
DMMD (Developing Methods for Measuring Biodiversity)
geoLAB supported the Italian Academy of Forest Sciences with GIS modeling
Activities of GIS laboratory of GISFORM within the project “Intesa Stato-Regioni-Enti Locali per la realizzazione del sistema informativo geografico di riferimento” (the project for the design and implementation of the national geographic information system)
Monte Morello
Implementation of the digital ortophotographic coverage and the Land Information System for the project of a Management and re-naturalization of wood plantations in Monte Morello (Florence, Italy)
Implementation of a land model based on fuzzy GIS technologies to define areas suitable for trees plantation in the south of Italy (Calabria, Campania and Basilicata regions). This work was done within the national Multi-regional Operative Program (POM) “Models for a sustainable wood cultivation in the Regions of south Italy", Action 4.
Within the 5th Framework Programme geoLAB supported the Italian Academy of Forest Sciences in the project “Scale Dependent Monitoring of Non-Timber Forest Resources Based on Indicators Assessed in Various Data Sources (MNTFR)”. geoLAB activity concerned GIS modeling and remotely sensed data elaboration.
Project for biodiversity monitoring
Land Use and Vegetation Cover Map" based on the fourth thematic level CORINE/Biotopes legend. Project scale was 1:250000 covering all Italy. The project was based on multi-temporal Landsat TM imagery supported by ancillary information in GIS environment
