Landfills play an important role in urban society. Consequently, an accurate management and planning of such anthropic activities are essential to improve decision making eco-strategies. The application of remote sensing techniques may improve the monitoring of different environmental matrices and the assessment of both gas emission in the atmosphere and leachate migration. This work describes a multi-source approach based on remote sensing and field data. To achieve this goal a downscaling and multi-temporal approach was adopted by using aerial photos, multispectral and hyperspectral imagery and overnight thermal and photogrammetric surveys. The integration of such different geomatic processing techniques allows to detect Environmental Point of Interest (EPI) inside and around the landfill.
