This 3-day course has been approved for 12.0 hours HSW.
Most of the workshop will use the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village as a virtual subject to examine the documentation technologies and methods presented. The UCHV was established in the 1970s to interpret the early Ukrainian settlements of east central Alberta, and features over 40 restored vernacular buildings.
This workshop will take place over 3 half days (approximately 4hrs per day), and will be delivered over a digital conferencing system. Participants will be introduced to the need for the recording of heritage places to inform the best conservation (preservation) approaches. Led by heritage recording specialists, a variety of documentation technologies are explored, from capturing techniques, processing of the captured data into deliverables, leveraging these products for activities such as analysis and condition assessments and dissemination methods which are especially important during this time requiring remote access to sites.
Participants will be asked to select one of 3 sessions for the Day 2 of the workshop. This will allow participants to get a broader session, and facilitate integration and exchanges with the workshop presenters. The 3 sessions will cover large to small scale surveys. For large scale surveys, participants will be exposed to commercial and open source tools. For medium size projects, the use of photography, photogrammetry and laser scanning will be covered. And for smaller scale surveys, a variety of tools will be explored from HBIM (Historic Building Information Models), condition assessments and tools that link to HBIM’s.
Day 2 Friday, October 2 10:00am - 2:00pm - Concurrent Workshop Breakout sessions WB1 Large Scale Surveys Leads: Annabel Lee Enriquez, Christian Ouimet
Digital survey forms, Arches Collector
UAV / Drone Arches Participants learn how Arches and can be used at a national and even international level, or in the case of this workshop, how it can be used for a smaller geographic scale at the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village.
Case studies will be presented, and participants will see how the software can be customized for a specific project, and will also have the opportunity to populate the system by inserting information about the UCHV.
A working example of the Arches Collector will also be used as an option to compile information. Participants will also have the option to do this remotely using their mobile phone or tablet, simulating a real data capturing campaign.
Other App based tools: Appsheet (Hannah Simonson)
WB2 Medium Scale Survey Leads: Christian Ouimet, Mario Santana-Quintero
Photography, including 360 photography
Laser scanning / Total Station
Laser Scanning Data (existing examples & scans captured in summer)
Integration with existing laser scanning data
Metashape (participants can download trial before class)
Photographic Data Emphasis on a simple, low-cost record, most widely used – all participants are encouraged to have their camera ready
Manipulation of RAW files
Exposure and white balance
