3D digital model is a virtual representation of the real world and demand for creation of these models is increasing. Various industries recognized the advantages of these types of models. Level of detail can vary for different applications, from low level detail 3D models that can be used in tourism industry, to high level detail 3D models used in construction and engineering.
3D models of built environment provide base for efficient planning of new developments and efficient management of existing buildings and areas. Modelling of 3D models is time consuming task and depends on requirements of the final model as well as on quality of acquired data.

Data for 3D modelling can be acquired by utilizing various surveying technologies or by combination of them. Terrestrial Laser Scanner technology allows collection of high amount of high quality data in relatively short time. It is this capability, of collecting data with great detail, which makes this technology appropriate for data collection as a base for 3D model. If this is combined with traditional survey methods spatial certainty of the model is ensured.

Although the high amount of data is advantage when creating 3D models, it can present challenge in modelling built environment and this research project will research how the acquired data can be modelled into final 3D model.
