Over the last few years many researchers have tried to exploit the benefits of laser scanning by using the technique in a broad range of applications and constantly challenging its possibilities. Especially in the field of cultural heritage, laser scanning has become an important tool for the creation of as-built data for digital archiving, monitoring or restoration of important elements of our cultural heritage patrimonial. One of the challenges, still remaining, is the use of laser scanning for deformation monitoring. This article addresses the question whether laser scanning can produce sufficiently accurate measurements so that it can be used for deformation monitoring of historical structures.
