Site DescriptionPerched high on a mountain overlooking the island of Naxos, the Byzantine fortress of Kastro Apalirou is believed to have served as the administrative capital for the entire Aegean region. The site has not been fully documented and site conservators will benefit from a complete inventory of the extensive surface structures.
Project DescriptionIn the summer of 2016, CyArk in collaboration with the Hellenic Republic Ministry of Culture, Ephorate of Antiquities of the Cyclades, documented three cultural heritage sites on the island of Naxos. CyArk completed laser scanning (Faro X330 laser scanner) along with aerial and terrestrial photogrammetry (with a Canon 5D and Phantom 3 drone). The documentation of the castle will be used by the Ephorate of Antiquities to complement existing documentation of the site and to help with planned restoration.The CyArk field team completed over fifty laser scans around the Byzantine castle of Apalirou. A combination of terrestrial and drone photogrammetric documentation captured over 9,000 images that will be used to create a photo-realistic model of the impressive structure and its steep mountain setting.
