Decision Support Tools

Strong competences with Geospatial Data and Technologies (such as Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing) and environmental data allow TriM to:

  1. implement Spatial Decision Support Systems;

  2. perform geographical analyses on land-use and land-cover changes and risk assessment;

  3. develop spatial modelling such as the digital representation of natural events and geographical contexts;

  4. translate results of weather predictions and of scientific analysis into meaningful information for decision makers;

  5. integrate meteorological data and reference cartography in order to geographically contextualize and to quantify extreme weather events.

Weather Forecasting and Monitoring

It is the application of science and available technology to predict the state of the atmosphere for a future time (forecasting) for a given location or to monitor the evolution of an atmospheric phenomenon (monitoring). TriM provides dynamic daily Weather Bulletins customizable according to the different end-users characteristics (e.g. from high level sport decision makers to general non technician end-users). This service is oriented to the satisfaction of the different end-users needs, in order to improve the level of efficiency and efficacy of the previsions.

Climatological Analysis

Climate Change strongly affects human activities and natural ecosystems, especially in fragile contexts where the population is more vulnerable to weather and climate variability. The number of natural disasters generated by extreme hydrometeorological events, such as temperatures rise, changes in the precipitation patterns, sea level rise, is dramatically increasing. TriM supports decision-makers in identifying relevant and accessible climate data, existing technologies and appropriate analysis required to plan sustainable and efficient interventions.

Capacity building and Education

TriM considers essential to guide users in understanding, analysing and interpret environmental information and to raise awareness about the effective use of science and technology in problem solving. TriM provides practice and theoretical training courses on GIS and Mapping, on-site data acquisition, Remote Sensing, extreme weather risk assessment and weather forecasting.
