Short summary
The combination of high resolution Digital Color Images, Terrestrial Laser Scanner and Digital Photogrammetry survey is presented. Starting from this 3-D model an Acoustic Tomography was planned and carried out using geophysical and petrographical data sets. The different nature of the 3-D data volume provides a less ambiguous image of the materials and contributes in efficiency by increasing both fidelity and resolution in the non-destructive diagnostic process of architectural structures.
