The Guidance Document published under 3D for Heritage India shows how terrestrial 3D laser scanning (3DLS, also known as LiDAR) and photography can support post-earthquake recovery operations. Understanding post-disaster recovery includes several dimensions – economic, social, and physical – this guide focuses on the documentation of the physical aspects of built heritage, which contribute towards the emotional attachment that communities have had with their places over the years.
