Laboratory of Places 2019 – 8th Edition

From the 22nd to the 31st of July, 3D Survey Group organised the summer school “Laboratory of Places” at Sacro Monte Calvario di Domodossola, as the previous edition. In fact, the summer school born in 2011 and was located in the rural village of Ghesc until 2017.

During these 10 days of full program, the students learnt how to use advanced survey techniques and tools for the conservation and safeguard of Cultural Heritage,  in a broader and interdisciplinary vision of knowledge and valorisation. In particular, the main topics were:

PHOTOGRAPHY
-Digital images
-Digital cameras
-Resolution
-Focusing
-Shooting tricks

PHOTOGRAMMETRY
-Main concepts of photogrammetry
-Photogrammetric pipeline
-Capture geometry
-Inner orientation
-Exterior orientation
-Dense image matching process
-Orthophoto

LASERSCANNER
-Active and passive sensors
-Optical sensors
-Operating principles: TOF and phase shift
-Instrumental characteristics
-Project of laser scanner survey
-Scan resolution
-Point cloud principles: geometry, reflectivity and colour
-Point cloud registration: topography and ICP
-Errors in point clouds
-Data processing: from point cloud to drawings

TOPOGRAPHY
-Survey project
-Scale of representation
-Measure and accuracy
-Theory of errors
-Angles and distances
-Total Station
-Topographic Network

MAPPING (MATERIAL AND DECAY)
-Mapping material and decay on orthoimages: why and methods.

VALORIZATION/FRUITION
