Site DescriptionSt. George's Church in historic downtown Madaba, also known as the Map Church, was constructed in the late 19th century over the site of a sixth-century Byzantine church, thus protecting much of the original mosaic floor. Preserved in the mosaic was the earliest known map of the Holy Land, most likely designed to guide Christian pilgrims as they visited sacred sites throughout the region. Its uniqueness is one of the reasons tourists visit Madaba in numbers second only to Petra in some years.
Project DescriptionIn December 2020 CyArk provided a virtual workshop on 3D digital documentation of cultural heritage to two faculty members and one student at the American University of Madaba. Following the workshop the trainees documented three sites in Madaba using terrestrial photogrammetry over four days.
