Integration of Terrestrial Laser Scanning and Digital Close-Range Photogrammetry for Heritage Documentation
Historical building heritages have the greatest role to recognize each nation in the world. It is very important to save these identities from natural and artificial disasters. Digital documentation is the best method that has been used worldwide for this purpose. Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS) are used frequently in documentation of national heritage, because the system allows fast and reliable collection of thousands of 3D points. However, the scanner could not scan the surface of the object completely, especially in the case of high-altitude building and complex object. In this study the integration of terrestrial laser scanning and digital photogrammetry is used to manage the areas that cannot be measured with TLS. Three archeological buildings, that is located in Erbil Citadel, have been selected for the study. The obtained 3D models have been assessed by measuring points for the field. Assessment of the results showed to be within internationalstandards.
