Aula Palatina, Trier
3D-Monitoring of roman plastering at the Aula Palatina
As part of a research project of the University of Applied
Sciences and Arts Hildesheim/Holzminden/Göttingen areas of roman
plaster at Aula Palatina in Trier, which is UNESCO World Heritage,
were recorded periodically and compared to detect movements or
For this 3D-Monitoring the documentation of several test areas
the structured light scanner Comet L3D (Steinbichler) was used. On
the one hand the scanner enables high resolution for an extremely
detailed recording of the surface, on the other hand its compact
construction enables an easy workflow even in cramped conditions
like on a scaffolding.
Through surface comparison with scans of previous campaigns,
changes, movements and deterioration of the plaster can be detected
and shown easily.
