Paper Abstract

Laser-induced fluorescence for remote imaging of historical monuments is an established technique, which in this work has been used in measurement campaigns at the Coliseum and the Baptistery of San Giovanni in Laterano in Rome, Italy. The results presented here are examples that show that biodeteriogens can be monitored and that materials can be identified. Also, cleaned and soiled areas on the stone can be localized and differences between soiling can be found, which may be useful in the sustainable conservation for mapping and evaluation.
