The chapter presents the preliminary results of the laser scanner survey with related post production steps carried out for the documentation of Raksila district in the city of Oulu in Finland. Raksila is an important historical trace in the development of the urban planning of the city of Oulu. The district of Raksila is mainly a well-preserved residential Neighborhood characterized by a strong typicality.The general plan consists of a regular structure and a system of street fronts on the road are ordered and in an homogeneous profile. Despite this, Raksila still has no detailed and updated guidelines capable of managing all different types of interventions allowed (renovation, restoration, repair actions, possible modifications). For this reason, a laser scanner survey and detailed documentation have been created, through which all the elements and characteristics of the place have been defined and collected in sort of atlas and inventory reports. This new documentation will constitute the base for the definition of new guidelines, a practical support and analysis for the future interventions that can be carried out in total respect of this heritage. This topic is inserted as case study for developing the Research Project n. 746215 entitled "Preserving Wooden Heritage". The project is financed by the European Commission with an Individual Marie S. Curie Fellowship assigned to PostDoctoral Researcher Sara Porzilli, who is working at the University of Oulu - Finland.
