Find out what you need to do before submitting your articleThe use of Building Information Modelling, laser scanning, 3D photography and the associated processing tools  brings many benefits for the understanding and conservation of historic structures. However, the applications of these digital tools, which were often developed with new structures in mind, brings different challenges when used in the historic environment. Research and project experiences are developing quickly.

This issue will showcase successful uses of a range of digital tools and honestly examine where the technology did not quite live up to expectations and the lessons that can be shared. Topics covered will include but aren’t limited to:

  • Laser scanning of historic structures, technology, uses and benefits
  • 3D imagery
  • Post processing of digital data
  • Using BIM in the historic environment
