The target of the HELI-DEM project (http://www.helidem.eu) is the computation of a new Digital Terrain Model (DTM) that includes all the available information over the Alpine and sub-Alpine area between Italy and Switzerland.
The project is co-funded by FESR and includes the following partners:

  1. Landscape and Urban General Directorate of Regione Lombardia
  2. Geomatics Laboratory of the Department of Environmental, Hydraulic, Infrastructures and Surveying Engineering (DIIAR) at Politecnico di Milano
  3. Fondazione Politecnico di Milano
  4. Department of Land Territory and Geotechnologies (DITAG) at Politecnico di Torino
  5. Department for Strategic Programming, Spatial Policies and Housing of Regione Piemonte
  6. Department for Environment Constructions and Design at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI)
In the framework of this project, GReD is supporting Politecnico di Milano for the merging of the Swiss geoid CHGeo2004 with the Italian one ITALGEO05, by exploiting GOCE observations and the EGM08 global gravity model.
