The Alamo! 3D Laser Scanning and Photogrammetry to Create a 3-Kilometer Computer Model
Collapse Expand


This case study of the Alamo Master Plan in San Antonio, Texas, reviews the use of LIDAR (light detection and ranging) and photogrammetry in the creation of a computer model. The model was used for both documentation in Revit software and visualization in 3ds Max software, and it documented 3 square kilometers of dense urban environment in less than 6 weeks. We'll review the hardware and how we used multiple Autodesk software packages such as ReCap software, Revit, and 3ds Max to develop a computer model for both master planning and visualization.

Key Learnings

  • Gain a greater understanding of how to document large urban areas
  • Learn about creating visualization for master planning
  • Learn about combining reality capture techniques in 3ds Max and Revit
  • Learn about reality capture processes with LIDAR and photogrammetry
