MeMo - Research Institute of Measuring and Modeling for the Built Environment
The institute's work is based on the novel approaches of 3D measuring and modelling research and knowledge management. In practice, this means the measuring and modelling of 3D objects, cities and people (using sensors, data collection, analysis etc.), creating location-based services, combining networks, creating virtual worlds as well as creating and transmitting knowledge, innovations and patents. KAP (knowledge based academic platform) methods and practices are used to integrate innovations and best practices into the society. KAP is both a way to share know-how within our team and to share the tacit knowledge to the rest of society.
Future challenges of the institute are to integrate spatial knowledge (including data measurement techniques, positioning, navigation, GIS) into the social value of the built environment and into housing, decision-making and future retail for healthier environments, smart places and cities.
Centre of Excellence in Laser Scanning Research
MeMo is involved in the Centre of Excellence in Laser Scanning Research along with the Finnish Geospatial Research Institute, the University of Oulu and the University of Helsinki. A research group led by Hannu Hyyppä from the Department of Built Environment participates in the Centre of Excellence, which is led by Juha Hyyppä of the Finnish Geospatial Research Institute.
