Site DescriptionThe city made famous by its centuries long preservation in the ash of Mt. Vesuvious, Pompeii later suffered from poor conservation and management. Pompeii was CyArk's first project, and the first time that high definition laser scanning served to document a cultural heritage site.
Project DescriptionIn 2003, students and faculty from the Research Center for the Development of Integrated Automatic Procedures for Restoration of Monuments (DIAPReM) and the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Ferrara collaborated with the Soprintendenza Archeologica di Pompeii to execute a digital documentation of the Forum. The detailed digital documentation of the site, collected through survey, LiDAR and photogrammetry was used to create a precisely detailed model for the purposes of cultural resource management and visualization. The project was funded by the University of Ferrara and the Kacyra Family Foundation.
