Artistic and research interests

Hannu Hyyppä (Research Director, D.Sc.) is the head of the Research Institute of Measuring and Modelling for the Built Environment. His research group consists of engineers of different backgrounds (civil, survey, electronic, IT), designers, culture producers, geographers and 3D artists.

The Centre of Excellence in Laser Scanning Research (2014-2019) brought insight into topics of personal laser scanning and drones. The Academy of Finland’s Strategic Research Funding Pointcloud project (2015-2021) focuses on the utilization of point clouds for 3D modelling and commercial potential in mapping forests, cities and routes, such as roads, power lines and rivers.
