Geomatic techniques for Cultural Heritage surveying and mapping are increasingly changing the methods of data acquisition and management, specifically in Archaeology. The phases of digital data acquisition and processing are closely related and must be implemented in the most efficient and effective way for the various contexts.
The Geomatic approach, which promotes today the integration of different range-based and image-based methods, needs a discussion about the most appropriate solutions and best practices for 3D recording, monitoring, representation and information management, taking care to satisfy metric and data quality requirements.
This special session wants to promote the dialogue in scientific community by the presentation of experiences and research contributions on the following topics:
- Integration of Geomatic techniques for 3D recording in Archaeology
- Development of sensors and special devices for surveying and monitoring
- Instrumental calibration for 3D data acquisition
- Data fusion for advanced remote sensed techniques
- Long-term monitoring of structures
- Quality evaluation and standards in recording and documentation
- Multi-resolution geospatial data management in Archaeology
- Historical BIM technology and point cloud based 3D modeling for the detailed scale of the structures
Full Professor of Geomatics at Bologna University, Department of Civil, Chemical, Environmental and Materials Engineering (DICAM).
The main research interests are related to surveying and monitoring with integrated Geomatic techniques, applications of geo-spatial methods for 3D Cultural Heritage surveying and modeling, deformation control for structures and territory, Remote Sensing for environmental change detection and risk management, digital approaches for historical cartography, Geographic Information Systems. He has been Principal Investigator and Scientific Responsible for EU and national research projects, and Coordinator of the Italian academic Association of Professors in Surveying and Mapping. Reviewer for many scientific Journals and Component of the Scientific Committee for several National and International Workshops.
He is author or co-author of more than 300 national and international scientific papers.
