This book offers mainly practical assistance regarding the different methods for documenting historic buildings – starting from manual methods of measuring up to electronic and computer-aided utilities available today. In addition it presents a historical overview of building surveying as a method. The content is complemented by many illustrations and examples as well as an introduction to methods, that go beyond the mere graphic documentation and thus represent ways of conducting thorough building examinations. The book offers easy access to the topic of building surveying, both for students as well as for anyone dealing professionally with historic buildings.
The Arabic translation was implemented by the efforts of the President of the German Archaeological Institute, Prof. Friederike Fless and the Archaeological Heritage Network (ArcHerNet), in the framework of the “Stunde Null” project. This was achieved thanks to the generous support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Federal Republic of Germany.
The book was first published in german in 2015.
