3D Scan of St. Francis Basilica to Improve Emergency Management


One of the main problems of emergency management in case of damage reported by historic buildings after an earthquake is represented by immediate damage assessment. In fact, nowadays it is not possible to use techniques other than the personal evaluation carried out by first responders.

The purpose of the paper, presented by Prof. Fabio Garzia at the 6th International Conference on Heritage and Sustainable Development – Granada June, 2018  is to illustrate a proper 3D imaging technique to improve damage restorations, showing, as a case study, what has been done and what is going on in the Papal Basilica and the Sacred Convent of Saint Francis in Assisi, Italy.
