Abstract

Building information modelling (BIM) provides an efficient means of digital representation of detailed information on building components, geometry, spatial relationships, and semantic properties in three-dimension (3D) space. BIM helps understand geometric and semantic properties of buildings and provides the basis for a variety of functional analyses and applications such as facility management and maintenance, heritage (archaeology and architecture) protection, building deformation monitoring, town planning and decision support. The key aspect of building information
modelling is to use an efficient way to obtain 3D building data for detailed description of building structure. Terrestrial laser scanning (TLS), one of the most effective means of spatial data collection in a wide range of applications, offers the capability of collecting high-density and high-accuracy 3D point cloud in a short period of time. Recently, it has
been realised that the TLS has a great potential for efficient 3D data collection in support of BIM applications. Geometric information is one of the major components in BIM. However, a BIM process does not have to be single building model. It is actually a collaborative working from multiple disciplines or different professional sectors. This imposes great challenges on higher education system, in particular with respect to BIM related disciplines, e.g., spatial
science, architecture and construction. This paper began with the presentation of some issues of the TLS for BIM
applications. We then described the current teaching and practice of the TLS for BIM in the School of Civil Engineering and Surveying at the University of Southern Queensland, Australia, and addressed the major challenges on our course curricula, and proposed potential outcomes for the future development to meet industry requirements.
