"Dimitrios Skarlatos, is Assistant Professor in the department of Civil Engineering and Geomatics in Cyprus University of Technology. He holds a Dipl. Eng. in Rural Surveying from National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), M.Sc. with distinction from University College London (UCL) and a Ph.D. from NTUA in digital photogrammetry. During his studies, he earned scholarships and awards, including 'Diomedes Komninos' award from NTUA, 'Hotine Exhibition Award' from UCL, 'Prize in Photogrammetry' from Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS, UK), 'Lambadarios' scholarship (after written exams) and 'Lambadarios' Award (highest GPA in geodetic classes) from Athens Academy, scholarship from National Scholarship Foundation, 'Best diploma thesis award' from Technical Chamber of Greece, and a short scholarship from EuroSDR (European Spatial Data Research Network). For 12 years he worked as free lance land surveyor, court expert and technical consultant in geoinformation companies in nationwide projects, as well as in research projects (4 European, 10 national GR+CY, 2 grants from commercial companies) for archaeological site and monument recording, copies of museum exhibits and real time quality control applications using machine vision, AUAVs for mapping, etc. He is member in several professional and scientific committees. He has served as member in Hellenic Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, and vice president of Cypriot Association of Rural and Surveying Engineers. He is the academic representative of Cyprus in EuroSDR and co-chair in International Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, Commission II, Working Group 9, about underwater photogrammetry."
His main research interests are focusing in acquisition and processing of 3D data and point clouds using image sequences. This includes underwater, UAV or close range photos. Apart from image based techniques, 3D data acquisition is extended using hand held or terrestrial laser scanning. His general interests include Geographic Information Systems, Data Bases, image matching, DTM creation, orthophotograph production and orthophotograph checking without reference data, videometry, satellite image processing, and special applications of close range photogrammetry.
