Photogrammetry is the science of making measurements from photographs. The input to photogrammetry are photographs, and the output can be a drawing, an ortho-photograph or a 3D model. 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. This course will teach participants to visually record buildings, towards interpreting, critically analyzing their significance and assess their condition.Photography in Architectural Conservation will be used for research, conservation, development purposes and even production of scaled drawings.This workshop will demonstrate the benefits of documenting cultural heritage via photography aka photogrammetry.Visual photographic recording can provide the understanding of scale, context,style and elements among various other information.It also plays an integral role in the condition assessment of built heritage and can be vital in mapping exercises pre and post-conservation. The components of the workshop are structured in multiple sessions of lectures, fieldwork sessions, group activities and a final presentation. The focus of the workshop is fourfold:1.Scaled-rectified photography enabling site plans, elevations, street elevations, cross sections and details. 2. Introduction to Aerial photogrammetry, Panorama and macro photography relevant to architectural documentation. 3.Introduction to Multi-Spectral Imaging (MSI) in conservation processes. 4.Condition Assessment through technical imaging.Expenses for Students : Material cost :Rs.1000/, Local travel : Rs.1000/ as mentioned in expense.
