The terrestrial laser scanning system Riegl LMS-Z420i is assessing the movements of the shipwrecked cruise ship Costa Concordia.

In combination with other monitoring systems, the LMS-Z420i is contributing to the safety of the rescue and salvage team.

The ship went down on Jan. 13th at Isola des Giglio in Italy, and the Italian Civil Protection Department appointed the Earth Sciences Department of the University of Firenze as responsible for a permanent laser scanning monitoring.
