Personal profile

Cristina Tarantino

The information published in this page are entirely managed by CRISTINA TARANTINO who is completely responsible for it.

Cristina Tarantino, physicist, is a researcher at CNR-IIA (National Research Council of Italy-Institute for Atmospheric Pollution Research). Since 1999, her research activity has focused on remote sensed multi-source image processing and pattern recognition problems with using neural networks, support vector machines, statistical algorithms, and expert knowledge driven approaches. The different applications analyzed are developed in GIS environment according to the standard OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium) and mainly they concern: land cover classification, data fusion, change detection, time series analysis, habitat and invasive species mapping. She has worked to several international projects and is co-author of more than 30 publications on peer-review journals.
