Abstract

Historical Jeddah, one of the most important historical sites in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, has had a long history since it became the main gateway for the hajjis. The city contains many historical monuments founded more than 100 years ago, such as the Nasif House, which was built in 1881. However, the historical monuments in Jeddah face serious issues of different natures, such as problems of documentation and conservation. In the last decade, several manual measurement techniques were used to document these buildings; however, these techniques take a long time, often lack completeness, and may sometimes give unreliable information. In contrast, Terrestrial laser scanning “TLS” surveys and image surveys have already been undertaken in several heritage sites in the United Kingdom and other countries of Europe as a new method of documenting heritage sites. This paper focuses on using the Terrestrial laser scanning and image survey methods to document Nasif House, as an example of historical architectural documentation.
