Fort Abusina - 3D Laser Scanning and 3D Modelling


  • Bavarian State Authority for Cultural Heritage

Project Content

The comprehensive survey and documentation tasks of the Roman Fort Abusina near Eining in Lower bavaria took almost 3 years. Time was needed especially for recording excavation and reconstruction progress steps. For the project, 3D laser scanner by Riegl were deployed. 

In line with the surveying, the whole complex - including reconstructed and partially preserved Roman foundation walls - was documented both with terrestrial and airborne laser scanning. Through the combination of both data sets, a comprehensive three-dimensional documentation could be achieved.
