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)
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)
SUMMARY 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(More)
A joint project between the has been undertaken, with the main aim to create a set of 3D models of an historical building by means of photogrammetry and laser scanning-based surveying techniques. Beside the investigation of their geometric accuracy, a photo-realistic representation suited for interactive navigation and manipulation in VR environment was a(More)
The use of 3D digitization and modeling in documenting heritage sites has increased significantly over the past few years. This is mainly due to advances in laser scanning techniques, 3D modeling software, image-based-modeling techniques, computer power, and virtual reality. There are many approaches currently available. The most common remains based on(More)
In the last years UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) systems are become very actractive for various commercial, industrial, public, scientific and military operations. The tasks include pipeline inspection, dam surveillance, photogrammetric survey, infrastructure maintenance, inspection of flooded areas, fire fighting, terrain monitoring, volcano observations(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 as-built documentation, digital archiving and restoration of important elements belonging to(More)
