ICAR/06 - Surveying and mapping

Dr Marco Scaioni, male, born in 1969. He is currently Associate Professor at Politecnico di Milano, Dept. of Architecture, Built Environment and Construction Engineering. Previously he has been working as Professor in the College of Surveying and Geo-Informatics at Tongji University, Shanghai, China (2011-2014), where is now Chair Researcher in the Advanced Research Centre.  

His main research interests are the application of close-range photogrammetry and terrestrial laser scanning for deformation monitoring, geo-hazard management, 3D reconstruction and modelling of buildings/facades, automation of photogrammetric orientation procedure in close-range, digital mapping, special applications of Geomatics techniques (forensics, biosciences, planetary sciences, Antarctic research).

He has undertaken a series of research projects supported by the Italian Ministry of Scientific Research and University, the Italian Space Agency, Ministry of Science and Technology of China, European Community, and several Italian Public Administrations.

He is Chairman of WG V/3 (‘Terrestrial 3D Imaging and Sensors’) of the Int. Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) during 2012-2016.

He is Associate Editor of Applied Geomatics (Springer/Italian Society of Photogrammetry and Surveying) and the European Journal of Remote Sensing (Italian Association of Remote Sensing. He is member of the Advisory Editorial Board of the ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (Elsevier/ISPRS) and Infrastructures (MDPI).

He published more than 200 scientific papers, including 33 on SCI-indexed journals (62 including also SCI-indexed proceedings – H-index: 11), and 73 SCOPUS-indexed papers (H-index: 13). He edited a book with Springer in 2015 (“Modern Technologies for Landslide Monitoring and Prediction”). He served as Guest Editor in 4 special/thematic issues of international journals (Remote Sensing, Earth Science Informatics, European Journal of Remote Sensing, Applied Geomatics).
