Abstract
This thesis is a project developed with Kulturen Museum in Lund for the documentation of a wooden building from the end of the 18th century. The technology applied is 3D laser scanning. The project wanted to answer several theoretical questions through the study and to conduct a practical case analysis, which lead to the production of a 3D textured model of part of the building.
The work has been developed discussing in the beginning the state of the art of building archaeology, describing the different stages of study of buildings through history, from Renaissance to the seventeenth century and with an overlook of the approach of this discipline in the Nordic countries. Subsequently it has analysed the different kind of surveys for a... (More)
This thesis is a project developed with Kulturen Museum in Lund for the documentation of a wooden building from the end of the 18th century. The technology applied is 3D laser scanning. The project wanted to answer several theoretical questions through the study and to conduct a practical case analysis, which lead to the production of a 3D textured model of part of the building.
The work has been developed discussing in the beginning the state of the art of building archaeology, describing the different stages of study of buildings through history, from Renaissance to the seventeenth century and with an overlook of the approach of this discipline in the Nordic countries. Subsequently it has analysed the different kind of surveys for a proper archaeological building investigation: the direct survey and the indirect survey, explaining the differences and the technological innovation applied to this field especially during the last 20 years.
A detailed paragraph about method of building investigation with the most recent laser scanning technologies illustrates the “pros and cons” of the utilization of 3D laser scanning for archaeological purposes; specific case studies are described. A final comment about the rising problem of handling and storing of data coming from the utilization of those new technologies has been taken in consideration.
The last part of the paper is focused on the explanation of the background history of the typology of wooden building I have been studying and the detailed explanation of all the steps done for the actual project, from the acquisition campaign to the post processing of the data. An analysis of the data I got from the creation of the model of a single room has been performed with the examination of the possibility of future developments of the same project. (Less)
