Article
The study of ancient buildings and architectural complexes starts necessarily from a detailed and geometrically correct graphic documentation of their state of conservation that allows a complete analysis and understanding of their planar and volumetric development, as well as of their structural, material and constructive features. This is the cas...

Mass movements represent a serious threat to the stability of human structures and infrastructures, and cause loss of lives and severe damages to human properties every year worldwide. Built structures located on potentially unstable slopes are susceptible to deformations due to the displacement of the ground that at worst can lead to total destruc...

In the mountain environment, the presence of fractures or degradation in the rock mass could represent an important risk both for the safety of population and for the anthropic structures that have a productive, touristic and/or historical importance. For this reason, the monitoring is a primary action of control and risk mitigation. In this work a...

3D survey methodologies are widely applied to the Cultural Heritage, employing both TLS and close-range photogrammetry with SfM techniques. Laser scanning produces models with high metric reliability and accuracy, whereas the main quality of the 3D photogrammetry is the result in term of photorealistic representation. Many studies have been conduct...

The Po is the largest river of Italy, it opens with a delta mouth in the Adriatic Sea and it is bounded by the Apennines to the South and by Alps to the North and West. The modern delta occupies a broad area of about 380 Km2, with a coastal extension of around 120 Km. Several industrial activities, intensive farming and important naturalistic areas...

The main aim of this study is to comprehend landslide phenomena that affect the area of Rovegliana (North-Eastern Italian pre-Alps), quantifying soil displacements and investigating conditions that influence slope dynamics. Geological surveying turns out to be useful as support to the satellite radar interferometry technique, whose results allowed...

The Emilia Romagna Region (N-E Italy) and in particular the Adriatic Sea coastline of Ravenna, is affected by a noticeable subsidence that started in the 1950s, when the exploitation of on and off-shore methane reservoirs began, along with the pumping of groundwater for industrial uses. In such area the current subsidence rate, even if lower than i...

Nell’ambito del progetto ‘Κιμωλία Γή’ - KERP (Kimolian Earth Research Project) è stato eseguito il primo rilievo del sito archeologico della baia di Ellinika. Contestualmente allo studio e approfondimento degli aspetti storico-archeologici, è fondamentale e organico all’analisi globale condurre delle campagne di rilievo che permettano di ottenere l...

Geomatic approaches were used to investigate a landslide in the Emilian Apennines in northern Italy which occurred during excavation works for high-speed railway tunnels between 2002 and 2007. The landslide damaged three buildings located on the upper part of a hillside. At the site of interest, the high-speed railway system included three contiguo...

Subsidence in a deformation area can be measured in various ways, examples being conventional high-precision leveling, differential InSAR and multi-temporal GPS surveys. Integration of methods can improve results, and is crucial to extract high-precision data. In particular, orthometric and ellipsoid elevations, surveyed at different moments in tim...
Article
The safeguarding of Venice and the Venetian lagoon (Italy) from rising water is of great national interest. Besides the normal tidal regime, the effects of an increase in the frequency and intensity of floods in the lagoon have been accentuated by a reduction in the elevation of the land in respect to the actual average sea level. With the aim of r...

Three-dimensional methodologies as Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS) and digital photogrammetry, are used to extract digital models of surfaces. In this paper, the two different approaches, integrated with classical topographic methodologies, were applied in the 3D survey of a portion of Phaistos Palace in Crete island. The archaeological site repre...
Article
Laser scanning methodology which has been used in different sectors, allow surveying an object by means of very dense and accurate point clouds acquisitions. The alignment and co-registration in a defined reference system allow generating a D model of the object, with the possibility to associate the radiometric information useful in many applicati...

L’integrazione di metodologie geomatiche di rilievo 3D terrestre ad alta risoluzione, come la fotogrammetria digitale, il laser scanning e le misure topografiche classiche, permette l’acquisizione di grandi quantità di informazioni con precisioni elevate. In questo lavoro il laser scanning e la fotogrammetria digitale sono state utilizzate per il r...
Conference Paper
Nel lavoro vengono analizzate le variazioni planimetriche della fascia costiera del delta del Po da Porto Caleri (Rovigo) al Lido di Volano (Ferrara); lo studio è stato effettuato mediante rilievi aero-fotogrammetrici multi-temporali realizzati nel 1933, 1944, 1955, 1977, 1999 e 2008, alcuni dei quali con copertura parziale. Tale lavoro è stato rea...
Chapter
Nell’ambito della mostra Metamorfosi, l’approccio fotogrammetrico è stato particolarmente utile per “trasferire” virtualmente, mediante riproduzione, elementi archeologici non trasportabili (si pensi, ad esempio, ad una casa pompeiana oppure a monumenti come l’Ara Pacis) o difficilmente trasportabili (come affreschi) per la fruizione del bene da pa...
Article
Archival multi-temporal aerial photogrammetry allows to measure displacements of a landslide area when images are co-registered in the same reference system. In this paper we investigated three photogrammetric surveys performed in 1998, 2004 and 2007 in an area of the northern Apennine (Bologna). The study of morphological changes was carried out m...
Article
L’esigenza di ampliare la conoscenza dell’abitato di Festòs attraverso l’indagine, in senso diacronico, delle forme di occupazione e dello sviluppo urbano, ha indotto la Scuola Archeologica Italiana di Atene ad avviare, nell’estate del 2007, una synergasia italo-greca nella consapevolezza che solo un reciproco scambio di informazioni e una stretta...

In questo lavoro vengono presentate due applicazioni che si riferiscono al rilievo 3D di altrettanti edifici residenziali medievali a Padova: l’edificio sito tra via S. Lucia, via Boccalerie e via Pietro D’Abano e la Torre degli Anziani per i quali sono state utilizzate le metodologie laser scanning terrestri; un’altra applicazione, effettuata util...
Article
The proposed injection of seawater in a brackish, sandy aquifer lying 600–800 m under the lagoon of Venice to lift Venice itself uniformly up to 30 cm in 10 years raises many problems. We discuss here whether a smooth uplift can be obtained as claimed by the proponents. We first underline the similarities between the Ravenna and Venice case. We the...

In particular, the terrestrial application carried out in the last years have demonstrated the potentialities of the methodology useful in many different sectors. This tecnique has been u...
Article
Terrestrial methodologies, as high resolution laser scanning and digital photogrammetry, are used in many applications in the field of architectural and cultural heritage surveys: they are characterized by different operative procedures and precisions. Data deriving from acquisition of an architectural surface, “morphologically complex” but geometr...

This paper aims to demonstrate that capillary effects and structural collapse can not be ruled out as significant factors in the development of subsidence occurring above gas fields. These phenomena provide sound explanations for continuing surface settlements when reservoir pore pressures stabilize and for additional settlements occurring even aft...

The Neapolitan volcanic district is one of the most important volcanic areas in Italy; for this reason, it is regularly monitored using different geodetical and surveying methods. The aim of using laser scanning in this area is to evaluate the possibilities to get a good quality DTM (Digital Terrain Model) for different applications. Therefore, som...
