Photogrammetry is the science of making measurements from photographs. This course seeks to explore photogrammetric methods that can be employed in the field of heritage conservation for recording, documenting and assessing built heritage. It will focus on using the photogrammetric methods with the technological advancements encouraging more accurate methods of documentation. Photography in architectural conservation is different from ‘architectural photography’ since the end product will be used for research, conservation, development purposes and even production of scaled drawings. Photographic recording needs to provide architectural and spatial documentation i.e., understanding of scale, context, style, and elements among various other information. We intend to present a theoretical and practical understanding aimed at an integral part of the processes. Participants will understand ways to record spaces with varying levels of accuracy.
The workshop includes (not limited to) components such as, (i) Brief history of traditional photographic & photogrammetric methods (ii) Basics of technical imaging (iii) In comparison with architectural photography (iv) Scaled-rectified photography enabling site plan, elevations, street elevations, cross sections, etc., (v) Introduction to aerial photogrammetry, gigapixel photogrammetry, panoramic Imaging, etc.
Upon completion of the course, the participants should be able to – develop a critical understanding of visual Documentation of buildings and spaces via photography.
