GEPATAR (GEotechnical and Patrimonial Archives Toolbox for ARchitectural conservation in Belgium) is a federally funded BRAIN-be research project aiming at creating an online interactive geo-information tool that allows the user to view and to be informed about Belgian heritage buildings at risk due to differential ground movements.
The differential ground movement is calculated using advanced satellite-based radar techniques. The project developed a computing architecture that integrates these remotely sensed measurements with federal and regional historical, architectural and environmental data sources, and damage modelling. The GEPATAR toolbox presents the results in a user-friendly interface in three languages (Dutch, French, and English).
GEPATAR is a valuable online toolbox for stakeholders in heritage maintenance, conservation, and restoration. It is of interest to architects, engineers, researchers, governmental agencies, and decision-makers at regional and local municipalities.
On Thursday, September 12th 2019, the GEPATAR toolbox will be presented to all stakeholders in heritage maintenance, conservation, and restoration during an information day at the Royal Military Academy.
Registration is obligatory but free of charge.
Registration deadline: 29 August 2019
