Using Photogrammetry To Document, Analyze, And Reverse-Engineer Grave Markers, Robert Z. Selden Jr. Jan 2015

Using Photogrammetry To Document, Analyze, And Reverse-Engineer Grave Markers, Robert Z. Selden Jr.

Robert Z. Selden Jr.

There are a wide range of applications for three-dimensional (3D) data in archaeology, and a diverse array of methods for collecting and analyzing those data. In this article, free 3D photogrammetry software (Autodesk 123D Catch) is used to document a series of grave markers. The data are subsequently exported to Geomagic Design X to demonstrate and briefly discuss the various potential analyses that might be used to illustrate the effects of preservation treatments and marker degradation through time. Further, one marker is reverse-engineered, illustrating the capacity of 3D modeling to expedite the process of design, should elements warrant replacement. Additional ...

Living In The Past: Preservation, Interpretation, And Engagement, And The 19th – Early 20th Century Home, Kirsten Jarrett Jan 2014

Living In The Past: Preservation, Interpretation, And Engagement, And The 19th – Early 20th Century Home, Kirsten Jarrett

Kirsten Jarrett

In recent years, boundaries between curated domestic space (typically open to the public, maintained by museum professionals, and supported by government or charitable funding), and privately occupied dwellings, have on occasion been eroded. Each year, usually as part of annual heritage events run by non-profit organisations, a small number of residents permit members of the public to view features of historic interest within their homes. Furthermore, extensive opportunities to share information, images, and data on-line allow residents to ‘virtually’ display historical features within otherwise closed domestic spaces. Adopting approaches from ‘Rescue’, Research, and Public Archaeology, the Living in the Past ...

Erosión De La Institucionalidad Pública Como Parte De La Erosión Del Centro Histórico, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. Jul 2013

Erosión De La Institucionalidad Pública Como Parte De La Erosión Del Centro Histórico, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Ni el patrimonio económico y cultural heredado del pasado, ni la importancia política y los medios financieros que el Estado atribuya a sus ciudades serán suficientes si no se produce la movilización de sus propias fuerzas. Para lo cual se requiere que las ciudades dispongan de una fuerte identidad sociocultural y de un liderazgo político autónomo y representativo y, sobre esta base, generen proyectos colectivos que proporcionen a la sociedad urbana la ilusión movilizadora de todos sus recursos potenciales

It is presumed that people with divers cultural backgrounds would have difference opinions about gardens. With the attention to the visual and artistic quality of gardens, an iconographic method dealing with both art and history was selected in this study. It concluded that garden iconography should be understood as a collection of stimuli that is open to perception, interpretation, and judgment. Consequently, four gardens among well ...

Historic Building Information Modelling Phd, Maurice Murphy Apr 2012

Historic Building Information Modelling Phd, Maurice Murphy

Maurice Murphy

Historic Building Information Modelling (HBIM) is a novel prototype library of parametric objects, based on historic architectural data, in addition to a mapping system for plotting the library objects onto laser scan survey data. The HBIM process begins with remote collection of survey data using a terrestrial laser scanner. This is then followed by the processing of the laser scan survey data to generate ortho-image and segmented point cloud data for mapping of library objects. The next stage involves the design of new shape and parametric rules for the construction of a library of objects that are based on 18th ...

Iconographic Method And The Development Of Emerging Garden’S Identity, Mina Kaboudarahangi, Osman Mohd Tahir, Mustafa Kamal M.S

Mina Kaboudarahangi

Garden design has been described as a category of fine arts with a long association with landscape painting. Thus, gardens can be considered as a work of art due to their artistic nature and value. Accordingly, like other artistic artefacts, they can be studied and recognized by their specific icons. This is very true for a number of well-known gardens in the world, like Persian, English, Japanese and Chinese gardens, which are recognized through their individual icons. However, emerging gardens still do not possess any icons that people can identify them with. Consequently, there is a need for these gardens ...

The Potential Of Iconography As A Method In The Development Of A New Garden Identity, Mina Kaboudarahangi, Osman Mohd Tahir, Mustafa Kamal M.S

Mina Kaboudarahangi

Garden design has been described as a category of fine arts and, it has a long time interrelationship with the art of painting. Gardens can be defined as works of art due to their artistic values. Therefore, like other artifacts, they can be studied and recognized by their specific icons. Numerous famous historical gardens in the world are recognized through their individual icons. However, newly developing gardens do not yet posses any icons that represent them. Nevertheless, these new gardens should be developed, recognized and identified through their particular icons, to exhibit their exclusive identities. Hence, this paper will discuss ...

Preferred Iconography In Developing Garden Identity For Malaysia, Mina Kaboudarahangi

Mina Kaboudarahangi

Malaysia has always been proud of her unique natural environment and cultural heritages, but still is searching for an exclusive identity of its own gardens. There is a great potential for development of a garden identity for the country, based on her rich legacy in traditions, cultures and beliefs, through which she could identify herself. The nation has a complex population composed of Malay, Chinese and Indian races. Hence, the icon, form, quality and appearance that are going to be introduced for Malaysian gardens should be appreciated, valued and respected by the Malaysian publics with diverse culture and preferences.

Visual Preferences For The Development Of A Malaysian Garden Identity, Mina Kaboudarahangi, Osman Mohd Tahir, Mustafa Kamal M.S, Suhardi Maulan

Mina Kaboudarahangi

Malaysia is a developing country that has been experiencing rapid development since its independence in 1957. The country-with its unique natural and cultural heritage-is in need of projecting its own landscape identity through the development of a distinct national garden identity. This paper discusses a study that used Content Identifying Methodology to determine Malaysian public preferences among the iconographies of four selected well-established gardens, with the purpose of determining visual preferences of Malaysians for their own developing gardens. The results of the study found that plants, water, and traditional architectural features imbued with meaning were the preferred elements for a ...

La Accesibilidad En Centros Históricos / Accesibility In Historic Centres, Yanet Lezama-López Apr 2009

La Accesibilidad En Centros Históricos / Accesibility In Historic Centres, Yanet Lezama-López

Yanet Lezama-López

A través de una revisión crítica de la teoría y la práctica de la planificación urbana predominante en México, basada en el paradigma del movimiento modernista o lecorbusiano desde el Siglo XX, el artículo presenta elementos teóricos (principios o cualidades y aspectos del diseño urbano) que facilitan tanto el establecimiento de indicadores para el análisis, evaluación y manejo de los paisajes históricos construidos (PHCs), como la comprensión de su accesibilidad desde la perspectiva de la calidad del entorno urbano. Por cuanto a la accesibilidad (física, social y visual), esta se mejora si los entornos urbanos son diseñados respondiendo a esas ...
