Experimentation of an Information Model

Adriana Rossi, Umberto Palmieri


Wanting to answer the questions unsolved by a previous study supported by a survey with total station, this article illustrates the results obtained with 3D laser scanning acquisitions and photo shot datasets. The precision provided by the phase shift ranging scanner technology has allowed to measure to the millimeter the deviation between the surveyed model (objective of reality, although discontinuous) and the geometric model on these data interpreted. In addition, the mathematical hypotheses useful for parametric modelling (geometry processing) are discussed. Virtualizations have been created by adopting knowledge filters and scientific tools that address to the digital (re)construction (HBIM) that allows to share and manage information and to integrate interoperable models in accordance with current public procurement regulations.
