The Virtual 3D Representation of Old Railroad and Street of Jingtong



The purpose of this study is to represent the old Railroad and street culture of Jingtong, Taiwan. The study is conducted from an urban scale to a building level, including street facade, open space, and human behavior. 3D scan data have been collected and carefully integrated for the most effective illustration of local cultures. This study extended the size and the complexity of 3D scan to an urban environment by using a Faro Focus 3D® laser scanner. Experiencing an old street and railroad through the 3D scanned data of urban fabric has led to the creation of a new fabric definition in terms of building enclosures and flexible part of fabric. The scan data can be used as the most updated digital reference for urban fabric study. A new application paradigm of 3D scan data is proofed to be useful in illustrating a small town’s activity which is closely related to daily life.
