If our heritage monuments are well documented and preserved, we will be able to rebuild the pieces of our heritage in case they get lost or damaged due environmental conditions, structural instability, increased tourism and development. Laser scanning solutions helps in collecting highly accurate measurement of the monuments and sites with millimeter precision on a very short period of time. These data helps us to understand how structures were built, the current conditions and threats they face. The comprehensive dataset can also be used by site managers, archaeologists, and conservators to monitor the sites and perform necessary restoration work to ensure their physical integrity, safety, and sustainably providing high level of site management with ease.
