Abstract
Laser scanners are increasingly being used to create information rich 3D models of the as-built or as-is conditions of buildings, infrastructure, and other facilities. These “as-built” Building Information Models (BIMs) are created through a time-consuming and error-prone manual process, which is one key barrier to widespread use of as-built BIMs in industry. This paper outlines our research group’s progress in developing methods to automate the process of creating as-built BIMs and in creating suitable methods to represent and visualize the information that is unique to as-built BIMs.
