The Laboratory of Geodetic and Photogrammetric Measurements (LabMGF) is a research laboratory set up at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (DICA) at Politecnico di Milano.

Our research focuses on developing geodetic and photogrammetric techniques for civil and environmental applications.

We investigate state-of-the-art techniques for three-dimensional modelling and mapping, 3D/4D environmental and infrastructural monitoring, as well as for managing and sharing geospatial data with GIS platforms.

We employ topographic instrumentation, such as high-accurate multi-stations and geodetic GNSS receivers, combined with terrestrial laser scanners, UAVs and cameras and SAR for 3D measurements and modelling. At the same time, we investigate the usability of low-cost devices for large-scale applications.

Our research spans from glacier monitoring to infrastructure modelling, and bridge crack detection, from cadastral mapping to the use of Deep Learning algorithms and modern computer vision tools for advanced photographic reconstruction.
