Geospatial Surveying and the Digitalisation of Historic Buildings
This stimulating morning webinar is led by one of the leading geospatial survey firms in Ireland, focusing on the methods and applications of modern surveying techniques and data collection for analysing historic buildings and structures. Techniques such as laser scanning, drone-enabled aerial surveys and 3D modelling can provide invaluable information on the condition, material make-up and historic evolution of heritage assets, enabling design teams, building owners/occupiers and managers to better understand often complex structures and sites, and to accurately specify works. Applying this data to modelling and additional video/media content can also communicate vital information to a wider audience for cultural interpretation.
The expert speakers from Murphy Geospatial bring a wealth of experience from a variety of interconnected disciplines including digital engineering, subsurface engineering, property measurement and legal mapping. All of these themes are essential ingredients in the analysis of existing environments, urban and rural, including Ireland’s 40,000 Protected Structures and an estimated 300,000 traditionally built homes. Approaches to determining structure and property boundaries and the application of historic mapping are also explored.
