Laser Scanner scans and geometrical modeling were carried out along the railway network of Alessandria-Arona and Vignale-Domossola for the realization of a railway upgrading project commissioned by Rete Ferroviaria Italiana SPA (RFI).

The purpose of the assignment was to carry out survey and restitution of the state of fact of the train tracks and parallel areas for a band of 50 meters in order to allow the designers to take note of the interferences and geometries present on site.
