Terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) technology has recently increased its interest in the geological community for the geometric survey of slopes involved in landslides and for the acquisition of a DSM of rock wall, that can be used for predicting possible paths of falling dawn stones. In particular, the paper deals with this last application, focusing on some(More)
In this paper the application of a novel non-contact GBInSAR sensor to the measurement of daily deformations of an arch-gravity dam is described. The sensor, named IBIS, is a Ku-band interferometric radar sensor apt to simultaneously monitor the displacement response of several points belonging to a large structure. Moreover, the possibility of scanning the(More)
Imagery coming from high resolution sensors seems to become in the near future a tools to derive maps, comprehending large scales as well. At the current state-of-the-art, this dream is still infeasible: the main reason is the unavailability of stereo-pairs (barring few exceptions). Results of different researches on this topic has stated the usefulness of(More)
In the last 5 years terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) technology has shown very large improvements, either in the instrumental aspects and in softwares for data processing and visualization. While first applications concerned only the architectural or in general the close-range field due to the small operating range, nowadays dealing with large scenarios is(More)
This paper presents an experience of terrestrial laser scanning surveying of a large dam located in Alta Valtellina (Italy) at the Cancano Lake. The handler of this plant (AEM S.p.A., Milan) has requested this activity to produce some drawings of it – which was built up during ’50 – and to construct a 3D model to be used as geometric basis for the(More)
In the paper a presentation of existing georeferencing technique and a comparison between them is given. This is based on general considerations as well as on results two test applications carried out in the university laboratory, and at the ancient church of San Pietro al Monte in Civate (Lombardia, Italy). Two main ground constraints are currently used(More)
