During the Copernicus Hackathon ” Natural and Cultural Heritage ” of Eurisy (June 9-13, 2020) the Greek team GOMA was awarded. In the context of the competition, the innovative tool: “MIND: Monitoring tool of masonry arch bridges in Ireland using earth observation data”, for monitoring historical bridges which are also key elements of rail- and road-way networks at this time, was developed under the supervision of Professor Issaak Parcharidis (Department of Geography – Harokopio University of Athens). Specifically, MIND aims to identify and assess vulnerable bridge locations and characteristics with Satellite Remote Sensing methods and techniques, while at the same time using data from on-site geotechnical and structural observations.
This is an important application which is paving the way to practical EO applications, answering to technical challenges.
