    Abstract

    Heritage structures are important cultural assets that can greatly enrich our lives through their impacts on the surrounding areas, both aesthetically or by attracting tourists that boost local economies.
    Structural monitoring aids in the conservation of such heritage assets. As invasive technologies would not be allowed because of the vulnerable status of such structures, other non-invasive methods need to be employed. This project focuses on the comparison of two such methods, traditional total station surveys and a modern approach in the form of terrestrial laser scanning.
    The stability of the Gold Hill retaining wall has been monitored over short term periods using a hybrid laser scanner and the data generated has been compared with historical data provided by the local highway authority. As will be seen later on, the monitoring process is a complex undertaking that has to take into account a variety of issues.
