This study presents an innovative procedure to monitor the precipitable water vapor (PWV) content of a wide and orographically complex area with low-density networks. The procedure, termed G4M (global navigation satellite system, GNSS, for Meteorology), has been developed in a geographic information system (GIS) environment using the free and open...

The Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) is widely used in the photogrammetric surveys both of structures and of small areas. Geomatics focuses the attention on the metric quality of the final products of the survey, creating several 3D modelling applications from UAS images. As widely known, the quality of results derives from the quality of images acquis...

Integrated remote sensing techniques, such as photogrammetry from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), mobile laser scanners (MLS) and multibeam echosounders (MBES), are particularly effective in detecting and measuring coastal and seabed features and their modifications over time (4D analysis) induced by sea storms. In fact, these techniques allow the...

Geomorphological survey and mapping of the emerged and submerged coastal areas, particularly addressed to evaluate sea cliff instability within the assessment of coastal hazard and risk mitigation measures, require high resolution and georeferenced spatial data. Remote sensing techniques fully satisfy these needs and allow to obtain all information...
Conference Paper
The potentialities of an integrated 3D remote sensing survey with the most diffuse techniques, i.e. photogrammetry from UAV, laser scanner and multibeam from survey boat, are enhanced. Such techniques are useful both to verify the state of conservation of maritime infrastructures from a structural point of view and to highlight the phenomena of ero...
Article
Full-text available
In emergency and critical scenarios, the UAV could play a key role in accessing unreachable sites in a safe and rapid way, guaranteeing at the same time the necessary accuracy and precision of the survey. In this context, UAV survey campaigns have been performed by the authors in Norcia (Italy), hit by tragic seismic events in August and October 20...
Article
Full-text available
Orthophotos are one of the most common and typical products of a photogrammetric post-processing and, since the diffusion of specific software, their generation and usage have become even more widespread. In spite of it, some issues remain on the accuracy of orthophoto reconstruction, which is often downgraded by the introduction of meshes and Digi...

The paper presents an innovative methodology for monitoring the content of Precipitable Water Vapour (PWV) in atmosphere for wide and orographically complex area. The water vapour content is strictly related to the occurrence of rains, hence the knowledge of PWV can be useful to interpret and monitor severe meteorological events. An automatic proce...

A useful contribution to atmosphere monitoring may be provided by the analysis of GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) signals. The authors have identified a procedure to monitor in space and time the Precipitable Water Vapor (PWV) content on regionally extended and orographically complex area. The starting point of the procedure is the local...
Conference Paper
The use of Terrestrial Laser Scanner (TLS) is quite common for architectural surveys, however it requires to arrange special targets on the scanned object and to acquire several overlapping scans, which have to be aligned and edited externally. Recently, Leica released on the market a new kind of instrument, known as MultiStation (MS). It includes...
