Article
Full-text available
3D reconstructed models are becoming more diffused daily, especially in the Cultural Heritage field. These geometric models are typically obtained from elaborating a 3D point cloud. A significant limit in using these methods is the realignment of different point clouds acquired from different acquisitions, particularly for those whose dimensions are...

Full-text available
This work would like to provide a preliminary contribution to the draft of standard procedures for the adoption of Total Stations by rescuers in emergency situations, so as to offer a reliable and effective support to their assessment activities. In particular, some considerations will be made regarding the effect of the number and positioning of m...
Article
Full-text available
The archaeological site of Alba Fucens (L’Aquila, Italy) (303 BC) is the largest archaeological area of the whole Apennines. Extension, location and environmental context of the site require new methods for risk mitigation and conservation. In this paper, a multiscale geomatic approach, based on remote sensing and UAV photogrammetry, is reported. T...
Article
Full-text available
Monitoring infrastructures is becoming an important and challenging issue. In Italy, the heritage consists of more than 60,000 bridges, which need to be inspected and detected in order to guarantee their strength and durability function during nominal lifespan. In this paper, a non-destructive survey methodology for study concrete bridges surface d...

Full-text available
This paper represents the result of the IAEG C35 Commission “Monitoring methods and approaches in engineering geology applications” workgroup aimed to describe a general overview of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and their potentiality in several engineering geology applications. The use of UAV has progressively increased in the last decade and no...
Article
Full-text available
Coastal environments are facing constant changes over time due to their dynamic nature and geological, geomorphological, hydrodynamic, biological, climatic and anthropogenic factors. For these reasons, the monitoring of these areas is crucial for the safeguarding of the cultural heritage and the populations living there. The focus of this paper is...
Article
Full-text available
Coastal erosion, which is naturally present in many areas of the world, can be significantly increased by factors such as the reduced transport of sediments as a result of hydraulic works carried out to minimize flooding. Erosion has a significant impact on both marine ecosystems and human activities; for this reason, several international projects...
Article
Full-text available
Remote-pilot aircraft are developing very rapidly and their potential in the various fields is often still to be fully investigated. The possibility to fly over the areas to be surveyed without the need to access the areas themselves makes the use of UAVs in some cases certainly preferable for safety reasons, as has already been tested for the mana...
Article
Full-text available
The Latin Colony (303 BC) of Alba Fucens (L’Aquila, Italy) is the largest archaeological area of the whole Apennines. Due to its extension, location and environmental context, the conservation of the site is particularly complex. For these reasons, in the paper a multiscale and multidisciplinary geoarchaeological study (remote sensing and UAV photo...
Article
Full-text available
In the last decades, the UAV photogrammetry has been widely employed to obtain a complete and metric survey in different fields, especially when high resolution, speed of execution and safety are required. It is widely used in the construction sector and an interesting research field is their use to support the historical centres urban renewal proj...
Article
Full-text available
Knowledge of a territory is an essential element in any future planning action and in appropriate territorial and environmental requalification action planning. The current large-scale availability of satellite data, thanks to very high resolution images, provides professional users in the environmental, urban planning, engineering, and territorial...
Chapter
In the last decades the photogrammetry has undergone interesting innovation, both in terms of data processing and acquisition mode, to allow obtaining detailed 3D models useful for complete survey and important support for the management and recovery of cultural heritage and buildings. However, despite recent developments, the main photogrammetry o...
Article
Full-text available
Nowadays geomatic techniques can guarantee not only a precise and accurate survey for the documentation of our historical heritage but also a solution to monitor its behaviour over time after, for example, a catastrophic event (earthquakes, landslides, ecc). Europe is trying to move towards harmonized actions to store information on cultural herita...
Article
The main advantage of using the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) photogrammetry in a post-earthquake scenario is the ability to completely document the state of the structures and infrastructures, damaged by the earthquake, ensuring the safety of all operators during the data acquisition activities. The safety and accessibility aspect in the area is o...
Conference Paper
Geomatic techniques can be considered as a valid tool to provide specific engineering solutions to monitor the structures, infrastructures and environmental territory. In particular the integration of the different consolidated satellite technologies as GNSS, Earth Observation, (Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), Satellite Image) with the innovative t...

Full-text available
The main advantages of using the UAV photogrammetry in a post-earthquake scenario it consist in the possibility to perform a complete documentation of the structures and infrastructures, eventually damaged by the earthquake, ensuring the safety of all operators during the data collection activities. The aspect of safety and accessibility in the are...

Full-text available
The old city center of L’Aquila is rich in historical buildings of considerable merit. On April 6th 2009 a devastating earthquake caused significant structural damages, affecting especially historical and monumental masonry buildings. The results of a study carried out on a monumental building, former headquarters of the University of L’Aquila (The...

Full-text available
Each community, passing through its history and its collective memories, has the duty to conserve, identify and properly manage its own heritage that, unfortunately, is often susceptible to transformations due to time, anthropogenic factors or damages caused by natural phenomena. For this reason, heritage artifacts are being extensively documented...
Article
The great number of GNSS permanent stations nowadays available represents a very important tool for many surveying applications. Satellite technologies as well as dedicated software yet affirmed, have opened new horizons in the field of surveying. In particular, the construction of GNSS time series can provide interesting results regarding the grou...
