PointSense Heritage: High-resolution Documentation of Historical Buildings and Archaeological Sites

POINTSENSE HERITAGE: HIGH-RESOLUTION DOCUMENTATION OF HISTORICAL BUILDINGS AND ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITES

 

PointSense Heritage for AutoCAD® is suitable for the documentation of historical monuments in conservation, historic building research and the recording of complex three-dimensional excavations in archaeology. Users generate significant and detailed rectified mosaics or derive 3D models from the laser scan data and photos. The integration of point clouds and photos accelerates the 3D modelling process. Stand-alone photogrammetric functions such as the calculation of true ortho photos are also included.

PointSense Heritage is part of the PointSense Suite.

PointSense Heritage: High-resolution Documentation of Historical Buildings and Archaeological Sites

POINTSENSE HERITAGE: HIGH-RESOLUTION DOCUMENTATION OF HISTORICAL BUILDINGS AND ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITES

 

HIGH-TECH DOCUMENTATION IN AUTOCAD® OF HISTORICAL BUILDINGS AND ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITES

PointSense Heritage makes functions available for laser scanner data originating from the documentation of built heritage conservation and archaeological excavations (such as image plans, floor plans, sections and 3D models, etc.), and where applicable photo like results, can also be generated. This combination of laser scanning and photogrammetry offers interesting possibilities together with the possibility of high definition and precise results directly inside the AutoCAD® environment.

 

ADDITIONAL SCAN VIEWS

The additional single scan view offered by PointSense produces a photo-like clear picture of the individual scans and allows a significantly more intuitive navigation of the scan data than as in the depiction of the point cloud. The unintentional snapping of underlying points is not possible in this view.

 

FAST CONSTRUCTION OF 3D MODELS

PointSense Heritage extends AutoCAD® by adding photogrammetric functions. High definition, oriented photos support the processing of the laser scanner data and allow the fast construction of 3D wireframe models and surfaces. The photos from commercially available digital cameras are oriented and embedded into the drawing. The geometric objects drawn over these photos are placed automatically in the correct place in the point cloud.

 

CLASSICAL PHOTOGRAMMETRY IN AUTOCAD®

Identical points existing in at least two photos taken from different positions can be used for the calculation of the intrinsic and extrinsic parameters of the camera and the alignment of the images within 3D space. Using this alignment, PointSense Heritage is able to calculate the 3D coordinates of any identical point within the images. Therefore, it is possible to conveniently carry out modelling in space without having to use laser scanner data.

 

CREATE REAL ORTHOPHOTOS

True orthophotos are computed through the combination of point clouds and photos and can be used as the basis for image plans. In the computation, the point cloud provides the precise surface information while the colour information used in the image produced is gained from the photos. True orthophotos usually have a higher resolution and so a better visual quality than the orthophotos produced solely from point cloud data.

 

UNROLLED IMAGE PLANS

By unrolling point clouds and photos of towers, vaulted ceilings, ceiling paintings, facades, roofs, etc. detailed, true to scale image plans can be generated, that can be additionally supplemented with further CAD information and dimensioning.
