Among the plenty of works so far presented on the use of laser scanning for cultural heritage survey, it can be noted that some geometric related issues have been not yet solved for. Most effort has been spent to achieve visually pleasant 3D models, mainly for VR applications, but only a few works addressed the metric and geometric accuracy of generated 3D(More)
Over the past few years, a remarkable increase has occurred in the demand for 3D models for cultural heritage applications. The techniques employed have evolved from surveying and CAD tools and/or traditional photogrammetry into laser scanning and more automated image-based techniques. However, selecting the most effective technique for a given project is(More)
This paper considers the problem of indoor navigation by means of low-cost mobile devices. The required accuracy, the low reliability of low-cost sensor measurements and the typical unavailability of the GPS signal make indoor navigation a challenging problem. In this paper, a particle filtering approach is presented in order to obtain good navigation(More)
A great number of papers have been so far published about the comparison and the integration between terrestrial laser scanning and digital photogrammetry, as surveying and 3D modeling techniques. Though most of the works report about their application to Cultural Heritage, achieved results have shown that these two technologies can supplement each other in(More)
A joint project between the Interdept. Research Center of the University of Padova (CIRGEO), a research group of Istituto Tecnico per la Ricerca Scientifica e Tecnologica (IRST) of Trento and the Visual Information Technology group (VIT) of the NRC Canada, in Ottawa, has been undertaken, with the main aim to create a set of 3D models of an historical(More)
This paper discusses a methodology where geo-spatial analysis tools are used to quantify risk derived from anthropic activities on habitats and species. The method has been developed with a focus on simplification and the quality of standard procedures set on flora and fauna protected by the European Directives. In this study case, the DPSIR (Drivers,(More)
The possibility to identify with significant accuracy the position of a vehicle in a mapping reference frame for driving directions and best-route analysis is a topic which is attracting a lot of interest from the research and development sector. To reach the objective of accurate vehicle positioning and integrate response events, it is necessary to(More)
The plenty of works presented in last two years about the use of 3D models in the field of Cultural Heritage witness the great interest of surveyors, engineers, architects and archaeologists towards the laser scanning technique as an invaluable surveying mean for asbuilt documentation, digital archiving and restoration of important elements belonging to our(More)
