A TLS can be a strategic instrument for data collection for bridge inspection and documentation, because it can reduce significantly required field time and auxiliary equipment. To deploy a TLS in this field, a semi-automatic method for post-processing a point cloud for documentation of a historic metal bridge is proposed. In this work, generating 3D model of existing structural members and identifying connection characteristics are mainly of interest. The Guinness Bridge built in 1880s in Dublin, Ireland is presented as a case study for the proposed semi-automatic workflow.||Funding Details:||European Commission - Seventh Framework Programme (FP7)||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Keywords:||Terrestrial laser scanning;Point cloud;Connection;Historic mental bridge;Damage;Documentation||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||IABSE Conference Nara: Elegance in Structures, Nara, Japan, 13 - 15 May 2015|
