Location: Medici’s aqueduct, pisa Italy
- 3D Point cloud in colour
- 2D AUTOCAD drawings, scale 1:25
The survey of the Medici’s Aqueduct in Pisa (1588-1613) was commissioned for the restoration project and monitoring of its static condition. The graphical representation of 2D elevations at scale 1:20 made it possible to depict every single stone, facilitating the design of an intervention to address the collapse of the arch. High Resolution Orthophotos were crucial for a detailed assessment of the aqueduct’s stability.
No physical contact with the historic structure and stones of the arches was required for the survey. Laser Scanning technology, being non-intrusive, proved to be the safest and most accurate method for surveying fragile historical features.
The overlapped information of detailed drawings at scale 1:20 and High Resolution Orthophotos enabled the creation of an accurate representation of the structural walls in masonry, particularly in the area affected by the collapse.
The Laser Scanning survey, along with its deliverables, served as an essential tool in defining the appropriate structural intervention and forming the basis for the comprehensive restoration project. This non-intrusive approach ensured both the safety of the historic structure and the accuracy needed for effective restoration planning.
