From Maps to Information Systems Along the Routes of the Drawing Navigating in the Archipelago of the Experiences of a Research Group (1974-2019)
Keywords:Information systems, resilience, education and research
As we perceive it today, the territory is not always the organic result of natural and anthropic processes of change and transformation
linked to the development of environmental, cultural, social, economic and political contexts. The contribution illustrates this
assumption by critically reviewing the research experiences conducted in the field of Representation aimed at supporting better
and more effective government actions and protection of material and immaterial systems concerned. The results of surveys that
have been the methodological foundation and essential cultural heritage for a series of research groups formed since 1974 in the
then Institute of Technical Architecture of the Politecnico di Torino are recalled: occasions that required working on representations of
different levels of detail, organized in an increasingly integrated system of information, where the vastness of the fields of investigation
and approaches has anchored itself to the tradition of the cleverest Italian culture, finding, over time, that unprecedented support
offered by information technologies that has allowed us to reach new scientific milestones.
