Subject of course

Topic in SS2021:

Analysis and application of roof structure recordings

Since 2019, the Research Department Building History and Building Research has been working on a partially automated processing of 3D point clouds of roof structures.

For the LVA, data from the project will be made available as an example to offer students insight into application-oriented further development of building research methodology. On the basis of data sets of historical roof structures, individual processing steps in the workflow for the partially automated derivation of bar models of the roof structures are worked out.


Thus, students have the opportunity to get to know the workflow of processing 3D data (recorded by laser scanner and photogrammetry) on the one hand and to participate in the further development of this workflow on the other hand.

Teaching methods

  • Introduction to building survey by means of laser scanning and photogrammetry
  • Lecture on the application of building survey data of roof structures
  • Introduction to the application of survey data for the preparation of plans
  • Introduction to relevant software
  • Support in merging of data sets and creation of plan material
