Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to handle special equipment (laser scanner) for the 3D recording of monuments and sites and all kinds of construction and the natural environment. A demonstration of the software to process large amounts of data acquired from a laser scanning system is provided during the course and the final product is derived from the digitization of all the details (mostly of architectural nature) of a building or a structure in the environment of CAD software.
