Last month we gave a talk about possible cultural heritage documentation solutions, based on the Lady of Kazan church documentation project that we have recently completed.
We have been working on the documentation project of Kazan church since the beginning of this year, and we have used a number of different recording methods such as photogrammetry, laser scanning and panoramic photography.
Our aim was to capture the current condition of the church using the best technical solutions available. Such frameworks provide sufficient and adequate information for further reconstruction and conservation planning, with the possibility of connecting our three dimensional models with work that has previously been completed such as the dendrochronological data recorded of the timber beams.
The results gathered from the laser scan data was used to build a Building Information Model (BIM), CAD model, drawings, cross-sections and a video animation. The introduction of panoramic photography enabled us to provide 360 degree views that will soon be accessible via the web. Overall the work was completed to a high standard and those involved with the church we extremely happy with the results gathered. The combination of all of the techniques has meant that all aspects of the church have been recorded and the data gathered will be used for future redevelopments.
Below are some of the images taken of the talks given by Andres and Jüri and included is an example of the CAD model produced directly from the scan data.
