This workshop will summarise the 3D laser scanning done in Ahmedabad and will explore and visualise the data obtained so far. Please go to Buildings to see some images. This workshop will serve as an introduction for the 3D laser scanning of Bela, in the context of the project.


The workshop on 3D laser scanning technology for students of the Master’s in Conservation and Regeneration (MRC) Program at CEPT University was a success. It was a blended approach of online sessions and on-site data capture following COVID-19 preventive measures.

The workshop was the first step towards capacity building for recording, surveying and protecting built heritage in India.

The workshop took place in the historic city of Ahmedabad. Two residential structures in the custody of Jinagya Awas Trust were scanned during the workshop. In the past, the MCR students have explored manual documentation techniques in this neighbourhood as part of a studio exercise. More information here:
