|The Montale is the smallest of the three towers atop San Marino's Mount Titano, and is included in the area designated a Unesco Heritage site in 2008. In 2017 a survey was undertaken by the Cultural Heritage Engineering Initiave (CHEI), then called CISA3, in partnership with the University of the Republic of San Marino. This survey covered the whole of the mountain and historic center, and special focus was given to important structures, including the three towers: The Guaira, the Cesta, andthe Montale, the Palazzo Pubblico, the Parva Domus, the Piazza della Liberta, and the Bascilica di San Marino, Chiesa di San Pietro, all of which are made available as datasets on OpenHeritage3D.
|A multi-modal scan was performed of the Montale, including terrestrial lidar and photogrammetry, and aerial drone. A first set of exterior and interior scans were performed on July 14th 2016, with a scaffold in place to enable access to the tower interior. Later, on July 17th, another set of exterior scans were performed wihtout this scaffold, giving an unobfuscated view of the whole tower. The dataset includes 31 lidar scans, 1543 drone images, and 1789 terrestrial images.
