3D Mapping of the Church of Protaton, Mount Athos

Title: Photogrammetric mapping murals Protaton karyes
Funding: KEDAK

Objective: The problem of photogrammetric surveying  of the murals of Protaton Karyes Mount Athos was very complex and in large scale. The extent of the surface to fix it was more than 600 m2 and it took over 4000 of control points, which were obtained by topographic measurements. Repeated required photographs of both analog cameras and digital.

The shots were made with great difficulty, both because of the lack of natural light (or its existence when the shooting took place against the windows) and dust, disaster, and the impurity of the wall surface.
