In this paper we would like to present an operational procedure for surveys of complex structures, such as the wooden dome of SS. Giovanni e Paolo in Venice. The aim of this work was to analyse the shape and the geometry of this very articulated constructive technique: because of its complexity, a laser scanning survey, with the support of more traditional methods, such as direct and topographic survey, seemed to be the best way to analyse this structure: from the data elaboration it was possible to create a 3D model of each element as in reality, without any simplification. In line with the growing demand of digital documentation in the field of Cultural Heritage, the 3D technology applied to this research allowed an immediate reading of the whole architectural system. This paper analyses the difficulties encountered during the survey and illustrates the solutions chosen to overcome them.

Abstract

In this paper we would like to present an operational procedure for surveys of complex structures, such as the wooden dome of SS. Giovanni e Paolo in Venice. The aim of this work was to analyse the shape and the geometry of this very articulated constructive technique: because of its complexity, a laser scanning survey, with the support of more traditional methods, such as direct and topographic survey, seemed to be the best way to analyse this structure: from the data elaboration it was possible to create a 3D model of each element as in reality, without any simplification. In line with the growing demand of digital documentation in the field of Cultural Heritage, the 3D technology applied to this research allowed an immediate reading of the whole architectural system. This paper analyses the difficulties encountered during the survey and illustrates the solutions chosen to overcome them.
