CRITICAL EVALUATION OF CULTURAL HERITAGE ARCHITECTUAL STANDARD DOCUMENTATION METHODS ACROSS DIFFERENT EUROPEAN COUNTRIES
Keywords: 2D/3D, Cultural Heritage, Documentation, Guidelines, Standards
Abstract. This article presents the current guidelines/standards for architectural documentation in various countries. Available regulations, applicable documents, technical guidelines, and good practices were analysed, together with selected examples of 3D digitisation projects. The results of the evaluation were compared with the guidelines for generating 3D documentation proposed by The Expert Group on Digital Cultural Heritage (EU) and Europeana. The analyses show no unambiguous hard technical guidelines. Still, there is a set of proposed guidelines and good practices to correctly carry out the 3D digitalisation process and the selection of equipment for the inventory of selected classes of object types. For this reason, it is recommended to detail the guidelines for the selection of equipment and the possible accuracy of the final architectural documentation derived from geospatial data.
