This masterclass will cover the different laser scanning solutions that can be applied across heritage

  • close-range
  • terrestrial
  • mobile
  • and drone

Although we work with traditional materials and look at traditional buildings, we utilize Technology to help us understand and record buildings better and faster than we ever have before.

We will also discuss their application through several case-study projects ranging from object collections to building recordings.

With their increased use in the sector, we must look at the potential for providing captured imagery and processed data that can aid the remote inspection and documentation of historic buildings and structures.

Could new technologies such as drones and laser scanners be the answer to inspecting buildings conditions through time and getting a handle on preventative maintenance? Could the digital twins be the answer to rebuilding after catastrophic events such as fire and or record the way a building looks at a static moment in time?

Topic Includes

✓ The application of laser scanners in the heritage sector

✓ Use and limitations

✓ The regulations that govern the use of drones in the UK.

✓ Case studies
