History in 3D

What is Photogrammetry?

Using digital photogrammetry, photographs can be combined together to create an accurate digital replica of a real-world structure or location

How it works?

Similar to how our brains perceive the depth by comparing the images that our eyes see, photogrammetry is a photographic technique in which software reconciles and reconstructs the shape of an object

What is it good for?

With the development of the computer science and its uses, the documentation of the world heritage became easier and accurate.Our vision at DigitalMeetsHeritage is to document cultural heritage, helping to preserve and protect it for future generations

Why Photogrammetry?

– Cost effective

– Time effective

– Very precise

– Less manual effort


Digital heritage data are now more accessible through social media, blogs and other platforms.With this you have a powerful tool to make our cultural heritage more accessible to the wider public.


Artifacts are one of the most exciting objects for the heritage. Many of these objects remain unknown to the public, either for financial reasons or because there are no possibilities for an exhibition. These objects are placed in cartons and stored in the archives. Digital cultural heritage data is a solution for the quick and easy publication of objects.

Extreme weather is weakening monuments depending on the material. When water getting into the monument’s nooks and crannies and freeze, it will cause the rock to crack. Copper reacts with rainwater and green coloring occurs due the chemical reactions. In  order  to  restore and preserve immovable  heritage  objects,  it  is  necessary  to  have photogrammetric  measurements and  to constantly monitor  condition  of  the  objects.

One of the most interesting uses of photogrammetry is the creation of an interior in 3D. Virtual tours in castles, churches or any buildings can be created. Here you have the possibility to look at historic frescos or the furnishings.
