Study and 3D survey of the Roman baths in the archaeological site of Lylibaeum (Marsala, Italy)

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Archaeological documentation is a fundamental step for research and conservation planning phases. Nowadays traditional recording is always supported by geomatics technologies which offer important support to the growth of archaeological study. The integration of sensors and methodologies seems to give the best results, in terms of time, costs and accuracy of products. In particular, the combination of Terrestrial Laser Scanner (TLS) and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) can help the documentation of complex sites and the production of 3D and 2D products for different purposes. The paper focuses on the integration of TLS and UAV methodologies to record the thermal baths of the Roman Domus in the archaeological Park of Lylibaeum (Marsala, Italy). The combination of range and image data are useful to achieve a complete 3D model and a high-resolution orthophoto of the site, in order to provide accurate and complete documentation for archaeological research and conservative project.
