    Despite significant progress in Remote Sensing (RS) and Proximal Sensing (PS) and integration-based direct geo-referencing (DGR) technology over the past decade, its performance still needs to be improved in terms of accuracy and tolerance to GPS outages. This is mainly due to the limited geometric strength of the GPS satellite constellation, the quality of INS and the system integration technology. The project aims to built methodologies for geographic position, the analysis and the detailed definition of the cartographic data (in terms of topology and metric accuracy), Web-GIS prototypes and thematic cartography with the support of traditional, innovative and “smart” technologies for the management of costal areas. In the frame of Project MONITOR

    ( of the Galileo Joint, Undertaking Second Call, GEONETLAB, University of Trieste” New Educational Programmes may involve “experiment on GNSS real time positioning and NMEA transmission via GPRS to a Local Control Centre, by using various kind of almost wearable or pocket PCs and Smartphone as well as of the DGPS/INS GEONETLAB technologies” (Manzoni, G. 2008) and ESA technologies ( In particular identified

    high bromine concentrations in the vicinity of the Etna volcano and the maritime park with Envisat’s SCIAMACHY instrument and the Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment-2 (GOME-2)

    instrument aboard MetOp-A. (MetOp-A, developed by ESA and the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT), represent Europe's first polar-orbiting satellite dedicated to operational meteorology. Test results show that delay modelling errors can be effectively mitigated by the proposed method. Research of novel geo-referencing systems based on GPS/PL/INS integration may been developed as an alternative to existing GPS/INS systems, with the support of smart technologies. Optimal geometry design for pseudolite augmented systems may be proposed based on simulation results in airborne surveying scenarios.
