Haapsalu piiskopilinnuse ja värvatorni dokumenteerimise esimene etapp

Käesoleva aasta juunis alustas koostöös partneritega Haapsalu Piiskopilinnuse pealinnuse ja värvatorni dokumenteerimist. Haapsalu piiskopilinnus on Eesti keskaja kindlusarhitektuuri tähelepanuväärne mälestusmärk, mis on säilinud osaliselt. Linnuse kogu territoorium on 3 hektarit. Kastell-linnus rajati ilmselt peale Saare-Lääne piiskopkonna Haapsalu toomkiriku sisseõnnistamist 1279. aastal, toomkirik on aga ülejäänud linnusega algusest peale kokku ehitatud. Haapsalu Piiskopilinnuse pealinnuse ja värvatorni laserskaneerimine võimaldas objekti dokumenteerida kiirelt,…

Kaasani kiriku projekti esitlus

Reedel rääkisime Kaasani kirikus kultuuripärandi dokumenteerimisest kiriku enda näitel. Käesoleva aasta alguses viidi kirikus läbi mõõdistustööd kasutades erinevaid kaasaegseid dokumenteerimismeetodeid nagu fotogramm-meetria, panoraamfotograafia ja laserskanneerimine. Eesmärgiks oli talletada kiriku olukord kujul, mis ei sunni tegema valikuid mõõdistamise ajal. Samuti üheks oluliseks eesmärgiks oli luua raamistik, millega on võimalik liita kirikus toimunud varasemad uurimistööd (näiteks dendro-uuringud) ning…
