Abstract

In these last years employment and spreading of GPS real-time kinematic techniques is greatly improved. Its application field isextended from traditional topographic surveys to environmental applications. In this work a monitoring project of electromagnetic pollution is shown; this project has been carried out in order to realize an infrastructure of measurement, transmissions, elaboration and management of surveyed data. In particular, the results of a research about the realization of a first prototype of advanced system based on the integration of GPS receivers and other sensors are shown. The research has been carried out in collaboration with“Dipartimento di Ricerche Energetiche ed Ambientali” of University of Palermo and with the “Laboratorio di Fisica ARPA RegioneSicilia”. The experimentation has been carried out using a car equipped with roof rack where both an antenna and electromagnetic sensor were installed. The GPS survey was carried out by a integrated palmtop-GPS, linked with an analyser of electromagnetic spectrum, in broadband or not. Well than, a GIS has been created in order to show some thematic maps which represent the distribution of electromagnetic pollution and accuracy positioning.
