What beauty to unveil?
New frontiers for the study of cultural heritage
The Società Pistoiese di Storia Patria (Pistoiese Society of Homeland History) has initiated an important multidisciplinary research that has as its object of investigation the study of Pistoia's Romanesque churches. For the first time, it is beginning to study Pistoia's precious medieval architectural heritage in an organic form and, above all, with the intervention of various scientific profiles and professionals.
How did we unveil it?
Aerial and ground surveys
A key part of the survey involves the survey of the facades, both main and side facades and on the apses, of the city's 5 main churches: San Zeno, San Bartolomeo in pantano, San Pier Maggiore, San Giovanni Forcivitas, and Sant'Andrea.
This phase of the research was carried out by AREA3D using laser scanner survey and terrestrial and aerial photogrammetry.
We used our drones to scan the highest parts of the sacred buildings so that we could then have precision returns with high-resolution orthophotoplans.
Features and peculiarities of the project
- Prolonged and staggered laser scanner and drone survey campaigns
- Photogrammetric surveys with integrated data between aerial drone footage, terrestrial with telescopic rod and from laser scanner with color point clouds
We are able to produce very high definition images that allow us to capture the smallest details in the survey.
We create high-resolution 3D content capable of accurately capturing the smallest detail.
