The Laboratory of Cognition and Spatial Planning (CoPS) is a structure of strong reference for activities related to spatial planning, urban planning and engineering of the territory, for study and university research, as well as for consulting activities and third mission. The activities are aimed at supporting decisions with a view to sustainability, territorial development and environmental protection, with particular regard to:
1. Analysis, forecasting, assessment and modeling of assets.
2. Assisted planning with:
- G.I.S techniques oriented (if necessary, also with the help of sensors for monitoring environmental and social phenomena).
- multiagent models of cognition and spatial analysis.
3. Decision support systems, including through the construction and simulation of scenarios.
The acquired acquisitions, also in the use of advanced techniques and technologies, have allowed to support several national and European research projects (such as PRIN, Strategic Projects and Exploratory Projects with Puglia Region), Puglia Region, Park Authorities, etc.).
