About

This project is a contribution of our company to the Service of Modern Monuments and Technical Works of Epirus, North Ionian and West Macedonia. As an act of heritage preservation, we offer monitoring of the old traditional bridge of Konitsa.

The old bridge of Konitsa, Greece was built in 1869 over the Aoos river. It has the traditional architecture of the single arc bridges, which is common in Epirus region of Greece and is part of the UNESCO Global Geoparks.

Terramon software covers all the advanced surveying needs of this project with efficiency and stability.

Three stations and 40 prisms provide coverage of the whole bridge in the front, rear and lower faces. Automatic resection based on surrounding reference prisms provide high level of measurement accuracy.
