Bringing historical sites back to life

FARO® offers solutions and workflows for 3D documentation of ancient buildings, monuments, statues and excavations. These tools help historians and archaeologists to efficiently capture, manage and analyze historical as-built data.

Capture & analyze historical sites

Capture & Analyze historical sites

Whether for restoration or scientific analysis purposes, for securing protected buildings or virtual presentations of historical sites, the FARO laser scanners enable the complete and precise capturing of as-built data in HDR colors. Final deliverables, such as orthophotos, 2D plans, 3D models and can be processed subsequently thanks to FARO’s heritage and archaeology specific software tools.

Documentation of historical building for historians and archaeologists

Adopt a sustainable CAD data format

Utilizing FARO laser scanning solutions and software allows historians and archaeologists to transfer scan of real world conditions into AutoCAD® drawings. As the worldwide standard software for 3D modeling, AutoCAD® software is secured by a long-lasting and sustainable data format.

Archaeology software: digital map, 3D models

Leave the site with a finished plan

Immediately draw and construct complete excavation data on-site, using FARO’s archaeology software which allows data processing captured by a conventional total station. Once the geometry has been transferred into AutoCAD® deliverables such as floor plans, sections or 3D models, a digital map of findings and damages can be created and amalyzed.
