Laser Scanner Survey Technologies for Historic Building Information Modeling of Heritage Resources in Saint-Petersburg, Russia

Monitoring and testing of buildings and structures

Historic Building Information Modelling (HBIM) is an emerging technology used for documentation and management of existing historic buildings. The objective of the paper is to develop of a unified hybrid technology for the processing, storage and visualization of laser scanning and photography data about historical buildings, based on decoding and vectorization algorithms as an information framework for HBIM of heritage resources in St.Petersburg, Russia. The first result of the technology application to historical building (Water Supply Tower of Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University) shows the robustness of the technology proposed.
