The team formed by the different groups can address each of these challenges with solvency so that we can consider the following organizational structure of the groups:

    1) Geospatial data collection: SIT Service and VideaLAB/CartoLAB groups.

    2) LiDAR data storage and organizational processing: SIT and LBD groups.

    3) Efficient computability: LBD, GAC-USC and GAC-UDC groups.

    4) Adjustment to different computing systems: GAC-USC and GAC-UDC groups.

    5) Visualization and interaction: GAC-UDC and VideaLAB/CartoLAB groups.

    6) Practical application: VideaLAB/CartoLAB, TB and SIT groups.

The TB y VideaLAB/CartoLAB groups have an investigation line orientation related to the territorial data management and analysis, while the TB group lines are focused on the application of this information and the territorial planning. VideaLAB/ CartoLAB groups are oriented to developing techniques to visualize this information on a computer, as well as GIS applications for the building and simulation applied to the territory..

The LBD group have experience managing geographic information systems in space and time-space databases, which makes its contribution very important to address the LiDAR data processing.

On the other hand, GAC UDC - USC provides the necessary computer and technological knowledge for the advanced development of geospatial information technologies, including software programming and the design of algorithms for the analysis and modeling of geospatial information. Its experience adapting massive data processing to different architectures (multicore, manycore, GPUs, cloud computing, and big data) not only improves the performance of the proposed solutions, but it can also open up new horizons that allow totally new solutions.

SIT service’s main contribution is its experience using techniques to collect and process geospatial information, as well as the use of data collection tools and experience the work field. Also, it provides an access to a variety of technical resources such as data collection instruments and software and data licenses that will make available for the other groups. It’s functioning as a support service in the USC for managing the geospatial information to all of its groups, allows it to have knowledge of the demands and problems that this type of technologies generates in current research in other fields of knowledge.

At the same time, it can be a proper channel for transmitting technical news and knowledge regarding the geospatial information to the rest of the researchers on the network. This way a multidisciplinary and supplementary market that covers all the process phases, from the data collection to the use of the applications by the final user.
