What beauty to unveil?
Technology and Culture
The survey, commissioned to us by the Diocese of Piacenza, was to serve as a technical/scientific basis for the restoration project of the exterior facades and as precision technical documentation. With 3D modeling, a virtual animated video of the monument was to be created instead.
How did we unveil it?
The three-dimensional method from survey to reconstruction
One of the first works ever, carried out with the laser scanner technique combined with photogrammetry on a monument of this size. The external elevations returned, present such a definition that it is possible to identify the materials present and also their state of preservation. The 3D modeling done directly on the point cloud of the survey is not only a "scenic" reconstruction but also exact in the smallest details of the monument.
Features and peculiarities of the project
- Complete laser scanner survey point cloud of 1 billion 660 million points.
- 3D model of the Cathedral with 9 million polygons and 350 Mb of sampled photographic mapping.
- High-definition video on vimeo
We are able to produce very high definition images that allow us to capture the smallest details in the survey.
