CNR-IMATI is the Department of the Institute for Applied Mathematics and Information Technologies (IMATI) in Genoa of the National Research Council (CNR) in Italy. Fundamental research is performed by the Shape Modelling Group on spatial data modelling, computational geometry, automated reasoning and semantic modelling. Their research activities relevant for the project are geographicmetadata management, semantic modelling of geographic data (ontology modelling, semantic analysis of ontology-driven metadata, geometric similarity among data), methods to represent and process the geometry of spatial data and the characterization and structural information analysis of geometric models.

Some research activities are performed within EU projects: of particular relevance is the coordination of the Network of Excellence AIM@SHAPE and the project INVISIP.
