International tutorials on Digital Tools for Built Heritage diagnosis and monitoring (DT4BH)

June 20, 2023 - June 21, 2023
Summer School

8 rue Léonard de Vinci
45100 Orléans




Recent advances in 3D scanning technologies of buildings, combined with their progressive appropriation by an increasing number of users, make it possible today to consider the systematic production of data for historic buildings. Processing of these large amounts of multimodal data is essential for the monitoring and the diagnosis of built heritage. Thus, Historic Building Information Modelling (HBIM) appears today as a promising and critical strategy for making the best of the collected data.

However, due to the specificity of historic constructions (large-scale, complex and/or non-standardized architecture/materials/construction process, specific applications for monitoring), HBIM still faces challenges before being fully operational. This scientific event proposes to address these challenges by sharing the latest research in this field.

This Summer School is organised in the framework of the Advanced Technology Higher Education Network Alliance (ATHENA European University)

Topics :

•    Laser scanning acquisition
•    Photos (terrestrial / drone) acquisition
•    3D Reconstruction from laser and/or photos
•    Application 1: GIS for mappings on orthophotos
•    Application 2: Machine Learning for degradation detection
