A center of applied research

The non-profit association ITHACA, based in Torino, Italy, is a center of applied research devoted to support humanitarian activities in response to natural disasters by means of remote sensing techniques.

ITHACA, founded in 2006 by Politecnico di Torino with the financial support of the Compagnia di San Paolo, has built strong competences in the field of acquisition, management and elaboration of geographic and cartographic data for emergency response purposes, delivering methodologies, analytical services and technical tools to improve the capacity of the international humanitarian community in early warning, early impact assessment and other risk management related areas.

With a view to cooperate with the World Food Programme (WFP) - the food aid arm of the United Nations and the world's largest operational humanitarian agency - the association was founded as a centre of applied research for the distribution of products and services related to Information Technology in support of humanitarian operations.

ITHACA activities are carried out in cooperation with Politecnico di Torino, specifically with DIST (Interuniversity Department of Regional and Urban Studies and Planning) and with other technology partners such as public and private research centres, aerospace and telecommunications companies and other territorial data suppliers.
