Abstract

Infrared thermographs coordinated with the results of chemical analysis of stone decay products (soluble salts-ion concentrations) and the results of humidity contents permits to evaluate environmental impact assessment on historic masonries. Hence, it provides information in order to assess incompatible environmental management and to valuate new uses of cultural goods. A G.I.S. application on the Medieval Fortification of Rhodes was developed by the NTUA - Materials Science and Engineering Section, using Arc/Info software for the display, query and generally management, of these data. A raster image of the old city serves as the main orientation base map, while measurements of distance and area can be display
