This chapter presents the main results obtained in a set of measurement campaigns carried out between 2013 and 2014 at a test site in the Lozère region, France, composed of the Puylaurent water dam and the Chastel landslide. The purpose of the campaigns was to validate on real data the proposed infrastructure monitoring method based on combining SAR data with externally measured 3D point clouds describing the respective structure.
