Satellite technology in South Tyrol

Oct 20, 2005 / alpMedia
By October of next year, South Tyrol/I wants to be able to receive data from the various earth observation satellites and evaluate it at a purpose-built facility at the European Academy in Bolzano.
An earth station is expected to be erected on the Rittner Horn. The spectrum of applications for the data will range from calculations of snow levels with centimetre accuracy and the observation of glacier ice to the monitoring of slopes at risk from mud slides and the tracking of air pollution, land use, agricultural management and husbandry, and zone of geological risk.
