Surveying and Monitoring of Cultural Heritage

Geomatic techniques in surveying and monitoring of Cultural Heritage.

The field of Cultural Heritage is probably one of the most emblematic of the potentialities offered today by geomatic techniques, representing the modern evolution of the Surveying methods; digital and rigorous geometrical description of moveable and immoveable Heritage, especially in an integrated approach, constitutes a basic information for any activity in this field.

The new techniques and technologies offer the possibility of obtaining new products not only in the surveying activity but also in representation and visualization, with the aim to have a metrically rigorous description together with powerful instruments for multi-faceted analysis and in support of reconstruction and restoration activities.

Alma HeritageScience research activities

Application and integration of geomatic techniques in Cultural Heritage surveying at different scales (object, building, site, territory) for purposes of documentation, representation, restoration support, replica of objects: topographical surveys, aerial and close-range digital photogrammetry, laser scanning, GPS, optical/radar satellite remote sensing, multispectral image analysis, 3D modelling, setup and management of GIS.

Setup and realization of special data acquisition systems for single surveys or for monitoring of objects, structures and large sites over time. The specific peculiarities presented by each case of study and the sometimes difficult working conditions, impose particular solutions in terms of costs, acquisition time, generated products, that a multi-technique surveying approach can partially address and solve.

Planning and execution of surveys, digital recovery and use of historical imagery and cartography, production and management of high scale numerical cartography for ancient urban centres and archaeological sites, georeferencing for WebGIS platforms.

Survey and 2D/3D representation of costituent material typology and of historical architecture superficial decay.

High precision monitoring and deformations control at different scale of intervention (building/site/territory with instability problems), also in support of structural analysis.
