Integrated Geoinformatics Technologies for Time-Lapse Monitoring of Land Pollution from the Disposal of Olive-oil Mills Wastes - GeoDIAMETRIS
Olive oil production is one of the most important activities in the wider Mediterranean region with the annual production exceeding 2600 x 103 tones, whilst Greece to third world after Spain and Italy. The beneficial properties of olive oil on human health are known since antiquity. However the production/process of may cause significant environmental problems since olives processing produces large amounts of solid waste and wastewater with high organic load and rich in inorganic constituents. The methods of the geo-informatics, including geophysical, chemical surveys and satellite remote sensing, find application in resolving various environmental problems as well as, in supporting the target groups (regions, prefectures, municipalities and environmental companies) to sustainable manage such problems. The analysis of satellite images and the combined use of geographical information systems can provide a sufficient and detailed spatial analysis at various scales.
The main objectives of GeoDIAMETRIS are the following:
GeoDIAMETRIS is 100% financed by the Operational Programme "Education and Lifelong Learning" under the framework of NSRF 2007-2013.
