TerraData environmetrics

 

WHO WE ARE

TerraData environmetrics is a spin-off company of the University of Siena (Italy). It was created in 2006 to develop, integrate, transfer and apply the results of scientific research, in order to promote quantitative methods for environmental monitoring and assessment. Some of TerraData members are researchers in, or co-operate with, the Universities of Siena, Firenze and Cagliari and in the Fondazione Edmund Mach at S. Michele all’Adige (TN). TerraData aims to study environmental problems with a quantitative approach, on statistical basis and Quality Assurance perspective. Our concern is to provide representative, repeatable, comparable, verifiable, transparent and defensible environmental data and analyses. 

WHAT OUR EXPERIENCE IS

TerraData skills in the field of biodiversity are documented by the research activities of our members. It has developed projects at Italian and European level working among others with the Italian Ministery of Agriculture, the Italian Academy of Forest Sciences, the Italian National Research Council, the Office National des Forêts (France), the Thünen Institute for World Forestry in Hamburg (Germany). We co-operate with other several national research and environmental agencies.

WHAT WE DO IN EU BON

TerraData is mainly active in terrestrial monitoring and remote sensing, developing indicators and indices, and has broad experience in GIS analysis. In EU BON, TerraData contributes to data integration, data analysis, data quality procedures, and knowledge transfer. TerraData will mostly contribute to WP2 and WP5, providing assistance for data integration and interoperability, data analysis, and quality assurance procedures.
