  • CitySpace 100 5th Street Southwest Charlottesville, VA, 22903 United States (map)


Presenter:  Julie Marton, Structural Engineer, Odeh Engineers

Session Description:

This course introduces the basic principles of laser scanning as it relates to the building design industry. After first defining a point cloud and the information contained in point clouds, the course will explore the process used to capture data, including common logistical and site concerns, as well as the process used to assemble this data for various use cases. The course will then explore the integration of laser scans with BIM technologies and practices commonly used for project delivery. Finally, several case studies will be presented illustrating various use cases and applications of the technology within the field building design.


At the end of this class, you will have an understanding of:

  • the basic principles of laser scanning & point clouds.
  • the processes of point cloud data capture & assembly.
  • integration of laser scans with BIM technologies & practices for project delivery.
  • applications of laser scanning technology in the building design field.

AIA Learning Credit CEUs will be offered.
