GCAD CONDUCTED A WORKSHOP ON THE UTILITY OF " DIGITIAL DOCUMENTATION TECHNIQUES"
Gateway College of Architecture and Design conducted a Workshop on the utility of "Digital Documentation Techniques" on 14.09.2022. Ar. Rishabh Sharma teaches students the potential of Digital methods and Techniques for Documentation of Heritage Buildings. The use of imaging technology and digital storage methods reduces the amount of time spent on hand drawings and also helps in taking precise measurements of the Site. Laser Scanning and Photogrammetry are the most common forms of Digital Documentation technologies for recording the historic built environment, each capturing data through a unique process. Experts from FARO (a U.S.-based company) were invited to conduct a Workshop on campus to make students familiar with the device, “3d Laser Scanner” for Digital Documentation, Preservation and Virtual Tourism in Architecture. Mr. Vijay Chowdhary (Sr. Account Manager of FARO) and Mr. Yash Malhotra (Head of Sales of FARO Technologies) conducted this workshop with the device, “3d Laser Scanner” and its import in AutoCad. These Scanners work to the extent of 70 meters, 150 meters, and 350 meters. It captures 2 million points per second, processes and delivers 3d Digital Data using 3d Laser Scanner Technology (LIDAR). These Scanners have been widely used at Heritage Sites like Humayun Tomb, Qutb Minar, Kashi Vishwanath, and City Palace, and recently found in “Chariot of Baghpat” (its mention in Mahabharata). etc. where physical movement is prohibited at some locations to prevent the structures from being damaged accidentally. It was an engaging session and students learned one of the latest technology used in the Architecture field.
