Site DescriptionPisa's Piazza del Duomo, also known as Piazza dei Miracoli (Piazza of Miracles) is an expansive, grassy field dominated by three, white marble, monumental works of architecture: the cathedral, babtistery, and campanile. They are famous for their construction and location at the entrance of Pisa, as well as for the campanile's infamous inclination, causing it to be called the "Leaning Tower of Pisa." While these three structures were commonly all part of a single church in northern Europe, their existence as three individual entities is typical of Italian practice of this era. A fourth structure, a walled cemetery, provides an edge on the north side of the site.
Project DescriptionIn February 2005 and July 2006, teams from the Development of Integrated Automatic Procedures for the Restoration of Monuments (DIAPReM) from the University of Ferrara, the Institute of Science and Information Technology of the National Research Council in Pisa and the Department of Architectural Design at the University of Florence conducted a High Definition Survey of the Piazza del Duomo. The data was acquired from 30 positions and was focused on the exterior parts of the Cathedral, the Campanile and the Baptistery. The 3D survey was coordinated and georeferenced with a topographical survey conducted by the DIAPReM team. The final 3D laser scan survey data was registered within the topographic survey with an average error of 3mm and fused into a master dataset (point cloud) that contains a total of 256,653,388 points.
