RESEARCH ON THE DIGITAL RETENTION MECHANISM OF TIBETAN BUDDHISM ARCHITECTURE BASED ON UAV AND TLS: A CASE STUDY OF BAOGUANG HALL
Keywords: UAV and TLS, Tibetan Buddhist architecture, Point cloud, Multi-dimensional retention
Abstract. Tibetan Buddhist architecture embodies ancient Chinese architectural culture and religious culture. In the past, the information retention mechanisms for ancient buildings were implemented as photos, tracings, and rubbings, which cannot fundamentally document the authenticity of architectural heritage. To explore the digital retention method for the unique style of Han Tibetan architecture，this research that based on the idea of reverse documentation first collects point cloud data with the technical support of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) photogrammetry and terrestrial laser scanner (TLS) and then uses registration method to obtain the integral of the point cloud model of Baoguang Hall. This paper explores the possibility of extracting 2D and 3D information, such as architectural plans, facades, decorative components, and models of the temple architecture, by processing point cloud data. Finally, this study proves the feasibility of using digital technology for the preservation and protection of architectural heritage.
