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 3 Saturday, October 3 10:00am - 1:00pm - Review of Workshop Breakout Sessions with mid-session break Presentations of each group’s findings and results and discussion:
Importing captured data
Processing using software packages such as AutoCAD and Revit
How do we extract information from Photogrammetry and Laser Scanning datasets?
Captured data needs to be in a useful format
Aligning coordinate systems prior to capturing new data
Demonstrate if buildings have moved or have been deformed (CloudCompare)
Data-rich outputs: HBIM, VR-AR & Databases
Did we demystify the tools? A resume of the presented tools and methods looking at required budget and skill sets
Discussion & Wrap-up Session (Co Chair) - Circling back to the question ‘Why document?’
Identify the role and need of heritage documentation in the conservation (preservation) of historic places
Evaluate and formulate an appropriate method for heritage documentation
Determine and maximize the use of existing and new heritage records
Evaluate and examine of what to specify when requesting heritage documentation
Participants will be able to assess the continuous evolution of new tools and methods
