Qasr Al Hosn, Abu Dhabi
Terrestrial 3D-Scanning and CAD-Drawings of Qasr Al Hosn Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates)
The ancient fortress of Abu Dhabi with its surrounding area, a
building formerly used for different events and a museum will be
transformed into the new cultural center of Abu Dhabi. Therefore
precise as-built-plans of the area and the buildings are necessary.
The elevations, sections and floor plans were drawn on the basis of
the 3D-Scanning data. A Riegl VZ400, a terrestrial laser scanner,
was used to record the buildings and the surrounding area. The
scanners range is ideal for recording the extensive area as well as
the architectural details in a high resolution.
This project was realized by Format4plus GmbH and was executed
for ProDenkmal GmbH.
