Digital Tools for acquiring, processing, managing and analyzing spatial data are crucial for sustainable management of cultural heritage and allow a better understanding of the objects under study. Laser scanning, photogrammetry, topography and GIS are important tools to facilitate this complex management process. Within the context of this summer school, the Heritage Management Organization (HERITΛGE) – in close collaboration with its partners – Ghent University College (HOGENT, Belgium) and Leica Geosystems (Italy), organizes three integrated and consecutive specialist courses on various topics in geomatics.
This field school will introduce students to a broad range of 3D recording and mapping techniques, as well as methodologies to use and analyze spatial data. Students will be provided with hands-on instruction in these methods in the context historical structure at the city of Nafplion. Students will record the site’s extensive architectural remains using terrestrial laser scanning and image-based 3D modelling, and process the acquired data in appropriate software. GIS will be used to publish the data in cartographic deliverables, and to use spatial data in for data management and analysis. Students should be able to work in the digitization of any site following this work.
The summer school is comprised of three integrated and consecutive specialist courses and interested applicants have the option to apply for participation in the whole summer school program (3 weeks) or for one or two of the three specialist courses.
The specialist courses cover:
- Terrestrial laser scanning (21 May 2019 - 27 May 2019)
- GIS (28 May 2019 - 3 June 2019)
- Photogrammetry and image-based 3D modelling (4 June 2019 - 10 June 2019)
