The Second-International Conference on Imaging Technologies: Techniques and Applications in Civil Engineering was held in Davos, Switzerland, in May, 1997. The intent was to create an opportunity for practitioners and academicians from a variety of agencies to learn of continued developments and applications in this field. This volume contains papers submitted for publication in the conference proceedings as well as selected tutorial materials. This document is intended to provide the civil engineer with a comprehensive and up-to-date perspective to the use of imaging technologies for solving civil engineering problems.
