Cortesão, Luísa; Parques De Sintra – Monte Da Lua SA / Direcção Geral Do Património Cultural
In order to obtain a complete set of measured drawings (plans, sections and elevations) for developing infrastructure projects in the Palace of Monserrate, a laser scanning survey was conducted. This technology is based on the principle of measuring distances by resorting to a laser beam, issued by an active sensor known as a laser scanner. This scanner is combined with a camera using a color sensor.
