Automatic data classification

Within this topic we want to learn, to consolidate and to develop in depth the techniques of image and cloud processing to classify elements both semantically and non-semantically. The aim of this study is twofold: 1) to use this information as input information in positioning algorithms; 2) to be able to create useful databases for technitians and public administrations.

We understand by non-semantic classification that one based on the analysis of the elements of the environment without taking into account its entity, that is to say, we are interested in its geometrical properties but not on its identity.
