Abstract. Landslide monitoring and assessment of the highways retaining walls are a crucial task. Because there exist a risk and danger with regard to the movement of the wall to the highway by landslide force that may spread further. To evaluate the changing, movements have to be monitored. For this reason, we practised mobile LiDAR surveys on the landslide effected wall on the highway. The usage of the mobile LiDAR systems have significantly increased in recent years, especially for road management. Currently, mobile LiDAR technology is capable of measuring the earth surface with high precision and density as a 3D point clouds. As stated in this study, the point cloud data processing have been analysed further and the wall surface points fitted to a plane object for monitoring of the landslide effects. This study focuses on different plane fitting algorithms which represents the retaining wall, a performance assessment and evaluation of the deformation between two plane models. The analysis indicates that the uncertainty of the measurements between the two epochs on stable areas survey was within ±2 cm. According to the experimental results, the proposed methods performed promising results that can be used for monitoring of retaining walls for fast processing and assessment.
