3D AND HYPERSPECTRAL DATA INTEGRATION FOR ASSESSING MATERIAL DEGRADATION IN MEDIEVAL MASONRY HERITAGE BUILDINGS
Keywords: Hyperspectral Images, 3D Reconstruction, Material Analysis, Cultural Heritage, Photogrammetry
Abstract. Cultural Heritage (CH) is a domain which has been greatly affected by climate change in the past decades. At the same time Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) have been greatly exploited to contribute to the holistic documentation, to support conservation and preservation actions. In order to move further on from the interdisciplinary approach to the holistic approach on Cultural Heritage the fusion of data from various sensors is the next goal. This paper focuses on the exploitation and integration of close-range 3D and Hyperspectral data from four Cultural Heritage buildings of Rhodes in order to assess material degradation. The methodology and data processing for this integration are presented as well as the useful and promising results of this approach which lead to further analysis and future work. The research is conducted within the framework of an EU funded project.
