Three Structures at Morven Park Documented

Morven Park Barn Complex

Above and below are screen shots (from AutoCAD) showing a group of rectified images assembled into model space depicting the existing conditions of one of three separate structures recently documented at Morven Park in Leesburg, VA.

For this project, the “drawings” are really a series of boundaries to rectified imagery organized onto different drawing layers.

All of the rectified images shown have been desaturated in order to make them read more clearly. Color versions are also provided.

Stone Barn at Morven Park

Below is a composite elevation of a portion of the stone barn at Morven Park in Leesburg, VA.

The “elevation” is actually a composite of three images, each rectified to respect the scale of 1:48 (or a quarter inch equals a foot) when printed at 300dpi. The individual images are posted below.

Below is a screen shot of a point cloud in autocad that shows the exterior of a stone barn. I’ve found that the density of points has a strong correlation to the content of the photos. In this case, we see that the stone surfaces create a very high density while the painted doors and such read almost not at all.

I’ve been too busy to post a lot of little projects that were in the works at the end of the summer. They’ll have to trickle in unless they get displaced by new projects… I’m just happy that there are projects! This post is just to share a screen shot of a point cloud in autocad that shows the exterior of a stone barn. I’ve found that the density of points has a strong correlation to the content of the photos. In this case, we see that the stone surfaces create a very high density while the painted doors and such read almost not at all.
