The Laboratory of Photogrammetry (LoP) of the School of Rural and Surveying Engineering (SRSE) of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) conducts educational, scientific and research work through the development, implementation and dissemination of methodologies of classical photogrammetry and computer vision. The field of research of LoP – NTUA concerns the collection, processing and geometric/semantic interpretation of image data collected from various sources. The photogrammetric products (orthophoto maps, point clouds, 3D models, etc.) are the background for several kinds of applications, including visualization, augmented and virtual reality, BIM, GIS, remote sensing, 3D cadastre, smart cities, smart buildings, etc.
Role: Coordination of the entire work of the project and participation in all the activities of collection and processing of spatial data, development of the back-end and front-end interface, development of multimedia services and the augmented reality app, commercial exploitation of the system, as well as scientific control of the deliverables, progress reports and commercial exhibitions of the project. In addition to checking the correctness of the developed and applied techniques and deliverables, LoP – NTUA is responsible for avoiding any deviations from the defined timetables and the management of potential risks, being exclusively responsible for the stages of processing and production of the multi-dimensional model (WP4.1, WP4.2) and the development of the Augmented Reality app (WP6.1).

- LoT- AUTH
The Laboratory of Topography (LoT) of the School of Rural and Surveying Engineering (SRSE) of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH) aims to promote and further develop the scientific field of topography through its teaching and research activities. The field of research of LoT – AUTH concerns classical and modern topographic methods, aiming at both basic research and practical applications of mapping and geometric documentation.
Role: Investigation and determination of user requirements and user scenarios, the architectural design of the platform (WP2.2, WP2.3, WP2.4) as well as the planning of spatial data collection (WP3.1). In addition to planning the structure and operation of the information system, LoT – AUTH participates in the stages of planning, capturing and subsequent processing of the data. In particular, LoT – AUTH designs the UAV flight plans, the process of capturing aerial images and implements part of the 3D modeling process. In addition, it participates in the evaluation of the system through cooperation with a specialized subcontractor (WP6) and in the commercialization plan of the products of the project both on a theoretical and on a practical level.

The Laboratory of History, Policy, Diplomacy and Geography of the Church of the School of Pastoral and Social Theology (EUSEBIUS LAB) of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH) serves as a center for research and documentation of the history, politics, diplomacy and spatial dimension of the Church. Its field of research concerns the following subjects: sources of Ecclesiastical history, Ecclesiastical history, history and modern state of Slavic and other Orthodox Churches, history of the Elder Patriarchates and history of Ancient and Byzantine Philosophy.
Role: Bibliographic research, collection and processing of non-spatial data concerning the historical, religious, cultural and geopolitical dimension of the monuments of Meteora and, in particular, the destroyed monasteries of St. Modestos and the Chain of Apostle Peter (WP4.3). The research aims at an extensive recording and dissemination of historical material from the establishment of the monastic community to the present, for the design of the contents of the database and its spatial interconnection with the corresponding monuments of Holy Meteora (WP4.3). In addition, EUSEBIUS LAB participates in the evaluation of the system through cooperation with a specialized subcontractor (WP6) and in the commercialization plan regarding the products of the project, both on a theoretical and on a practical level.
