Conference Paper
Full-text available
Since the early 2000s, digital photogrammetry has become increasingly popular in ichnology. Such approach has enabled the digitisation of footprints and the objectivisation of data collected in the field. In particular, the opportunity to analyse the footprints through colour-coded images represents a powerful tool to highlight the morphological ch...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The MUST (Museo Universitario di Scienze della Terra, Sapienza University of Rome), preserves a wealth of historical geological, mineralogical and palaeontological collections acquired during its long history (Manni, 1993). Founded in 1804 as the Mineralogy Museum, it moved to the University City in 1928, being organised into three distinct museum...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
More than 200 early-middle Cenomanian dinosaur tracks are preserved on three different horizons of a quarry near the municipality of Sezze, 70 km southeast of Rome. The ichnological analysis was performed by combining traditional methods and new tools, such as high-resolution digital photogrammetry and Principal Component Analysis (PCA). The study...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The Esperia tracksite, located 30 km south of Frosinone (central Italy), is characterised by about 80 dinosaur footprints, Aptian in age (Petti et al., 2008). Despite the strong slope, the surface was investigated using close-range and aerial photogrammetry, to obtain more accurate morphological details on the poorly preserved tracks. Due to the hi...

We provide a list of contribution by Italian scientists to tetrapod ichnology with papers on both material from Italy and abroad. Foreign author's contributions on tetrapod ichnology based on material from Italy are also considered. The list updates the previous one published by D'Orazi Porchetti et al. (2008) and, as a result, includes works from...
Article
Full-text available
This article reports the state of the art of research on the Jurassic tetrapod footprints from Italy. Most dinosaur ichnosites are located in the Southern Alps (Northeastern Italy, Veneto, Trentino Alto-Adige) with the exception of Mattinata (Southern Italy, Gargano Promontory, Apulia) and the Burano River ichnosite (Central Italy, Central Apennine...
Article
Full-text available
After about thirty years of investigation, the Cretaceous tetrapod track record from Italy has proved to be a 'Rosetta Stone' for improving understanding of the palaeogeographical and palaeoenvironmental evolution of the peri-Adriatic area. In the present contribution, we summarize current knowledge and different interpretations proposed on the bas...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Accurate mapping and 3D models are crucial for studying tracks and tracksites at different scales. The use of small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for mapping and 3D modelling is becoming increasingly common allowing you to capture reliable and high-resolution images comparable to those obtained by terrestrial laser scanners and manned aerial phot...
