It is important to establish and maintain accurate records for historic buildings. 3D scanning technology together with Building Information Modeling (BIM) provides efficient and intelligent ways to collect and manage building-related data. But there still needs to have tremendous amount of manual input and interpretation. This research used a 3D scanning project done by students from Illinois State University on a historic building for the Town of Normal, IL. The paper also discussed the
