Paper Abstract

A complete documentation of an architectural object makes it possible to reconstruct the whole object both geometrically and pictorially. In the past the geometric documentation was performed using line maps, e.g. from photogrammetric restitution, while the pictorial aspect was mainly covered by conventional photographs. Today digital photogrammetry and digital surface description techniques allow for the combination of the geometric and the pictorial aspect in a complete documentation of an architectural object. This paper presents some experiences with visualization of architectural objects. At first, various ways of digital surface modelling are described. Then possibilities of visualizing digital surface models (DSMs) are shown in practical examples. The paper is concluded with some recommendations.
