The creation of 3D models for ancient monuments is a not an easy task, due to the difficulty of creating a dimensionally accurate 3D model and a 3D virtual representation of the monument. In the last 5 years Terrestrial Laser Scanners (TLS) have been introduced in order to enhance the development of 3D models of monuments and the promotion of cultural heritage. The process of scanning, data processing and documentation of cultural heritage monuments, includes several stages in order to create a complete 3D model. Furthermore, even if TLS has clear advantages against conventional 3D model techniques, as far as accuracy, speed, reliability and quality of 3D data obtained is concerned, it has only a small infiltration to the market. This is due to the complexity of the overall 3D scan process and the lack of standardization of the different requested productsProject 3DSYSTEK aims to cover these needs by developing a novel system for 3D Documentation, Promotion and Exploitation of Cultural Heritage Monuments via complete 3D data acquisition, 3D modeling and Metadata recording. It will combine:3D terrestrial laser scanning procedures3D modeling proceduresRecording of Metadata in all phases (3D data acquisition, 3D data processing, production of final products)Recording of annotations that can be used in all phasesThe production of automated product results, including all intergraded Metadata, according to the user needs."
