  • The Laboratory of Photogrammetry of the National Technical University of Athens

Pyrforos goldLoP/NTUA expertise is on the field of photogrammetry and computer vision research, participating in numerous European Union and National funded projects. Characteristics examples include a) the on-going FP7 research project 4D-CH WORD EU, dealing with computer vision and photogrammetric applications for 4D content reconstruction of cultural heritage objects being captured on the wild over the Web, b) the on-going ITN-DCH FP7 research project which applies advanced tools in content-based search, 3D modeling and image analysis for cultural heritage applications, c) the on-going FP7 research project of ROBINSPECT dealing with the introduction of real time and accurate 3D measurements from a set of images/video as regards tunnel inspection and maintenance (the application includes the maintenance of highway, Metro and Railway Tunnel, such as the London Tube, Eurotunnel and Egnatia highway of 670Kms and 76 tunnels), e) the on-going FP7 European research eVACUATE with the purpose of developing real time 3D measurements from RGB and hyperspectral sensors in order to track, analyze and detect crowd behaviors in case of emergency (the applications include evacuation of airports, metro stations, ships cruises and soccer stadiums), f) the on-going National research project of JASON with the purpose of surveying humans and ships from stereo images for sea-borders monitoring. Apart from the above mentioned research the LoP/NTUA group have been participated in the 3D reconstruction of several cultural heritage monuments, such as several items of the National Archeological and Acropolis Museum, large scale 3D reconstructions of UNESCO monuments (Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the Delos archaeological site, Zalogo Monument, Nia Moni Church).


  • Laboratory of Computing and Cognitive Vision, Information Technologies Institute (ITI)


The Laboratory of Computing and Cognitive Vision is very active in problems of cognitive vision and human visual perception, as well as on vision for 3D object and face recognition, having in mind robotics and security applications, as well as database search and retrieval. We have extensive experience in photometric stereo, that allows the 3D reconstruction of an object using several images captured under various illumination directions.

  • Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering Technion - Israel Institute of Technology

Technion-English-Logo-pngThe Technion – Israel Institute of Technology is one the leading research institutions worldwide, having a strong National and International profile for research and technology. On December 19, 2011, a bid by a consortium of Cornell University and Technion won a competition to establish a new high-tier applied science and engineering institution in New York City. The competition was established by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in order to  increase entrepreneurship and job growth in the city’s technology  sector. The winning bid consisted of a 2.1 million square feet state-of-the-art tech campus being built on Roosevelt Island, which will have its first phase completed by 2017, with a temporary off-site campus opening in 2012.

The Technion – Israel Institute of Technology is a public research university in Haifa, Israel. Founded in 1912, Technion is the oldest university in Israel. The university offers degrees in science and engineering, and related fields such as architecture, medicine, industrial management and education. It has 18 academic departments and some 50 research centers. Since its founding, it has awarded over 95,000 degrees and its graduates are cited to have provided the skills and education behind the creation and protection of the State of Israel. 


  • Survey of Israel

survey israel smallSurvey of Israel is the government agency for Mapping, Geodesy, Cadastre and Geoinformatics. The Survey is responsible for the national infrastructure in these areas as well as for a number of official functions. In many countries the responsibility for these various areas is shared by several agencies. There is much to be said for centralized responsibility, because of saving professional human resources and the potential of increased efficiency and improved level of services to the public. There is coordination of activities and of investments and the potential for making a concentrated effort in cases of a defined task of national importance. It is essential to develop professional policy in the various areas of the responsibility of the Survey, including the licensing of surveyors and the supervision of surveys. In the field of geodesy, the Survey operates as the National Geodetic Institute, adopting the reference ellipsoid, developing and maintaining the geodetic control network, defining the national datum, both horizontal and vertical and establishing an appropriate projection with accompanying mapping equations and transformations, for applications in mapping, cadastre and geoinformatics. The Survey represents the country in international projects. Its Chief Scientist leads research, as well as geodetic surveys and temporarily acts as Registrar of Surveyors.
