Abstract

The RGB Imaging Topological Radar (RGB-ITR) is an amplitude-modulated, 3D colour laser scanner entirely designed and developed at ENEA laboratories. The system incorporates three laser beams (450 nm, 532 nm, 650 nm) in monostatic configuration, and can simultaneously record range and self-registered RGB colour data. Such distinguishing feature makes the RGB-ITR sensibly different from currently available 3D scanners, where colour imaging information is acquired independently and must be mapped via software onto the naked 3D model. The RGB-ITR specifically addresses the requirements of cultural heritage applications, especially in terms of non-invasiveness, accuracy and versatility. The system has already been used with success for the 3D digitisation of the frescoed medieval S. Trinity church in Hrastovlje (Slovenia) and of the Carafa Chapel in Rome (Italy), a masterpiece of Italian Renaissance. The results of these campaigns are reported. © 2011 Taylor & Francis Group, London.
