The symposium aims to connect research in deformation monitoring, including all aspects from measurement, technical realization, analysis to interpretation with advanced practice. Bringing together leading experts from academia, industry and representatives from public authorities with promising young scientists, the symposium has been established as a reference point for scientific discussion and interaction.
Our geomonitoring expert Daniel Schröder, together with his co-authors Katharina Anders, Lukas Winiwarter and Daniel Wujanz, will present the paper "Permanent terrestrial LiDAR monitoring in mining, natural hazard prevention and infrastructure protection - Chances, risks, and challenges: A case study of a rockfall in Tyrol, Austria" at the 5th Joint International Symposium on Deformation Monitoring (JISDM 2022) at the Polytechnic City of Innovation in Valencia from 20 to 22 June.
The focus is set on the integration of a long‐range terrestrial laser scanner into a continuous monitoring system from an engineering geodetic point of view. In the Vals valley in Tyrol, a permanently installed laser scanner was successfully operated via a web portal to monitor surface processes in the area of rockfall debris on a high‐mountain slope in the summers of 2020 and 2021. This paper describes the practical benefits of this permanent laser scanning installation. In addition to the potentials of automatic data acquisition, possibilities for multitemporal analysis with respect to spatio‐temporally variable changes are presented, using advanced 3D change detection with Kalman filtering.
