Automatic façade modeling for cultural heritage documentation
Preservation of valuable heritage of mankind relies on the latest scientific and technological advancements of human. As a part of scientific attempt to protect cultural heritage, this PhD proposal is dedicated to automatic modeling of building façade with focus on historical buildings. Due to the diversity of architectural styles, in terms of the type of objects contained in the façades and their details, modeling of historical buildings is more complicated than ordinary buildings. Moreover, in contrast with urban building modeling, degradations due to the passage of time need to be considered in the modeling process of these buildings. The literature review shows that images and laser range data are the most suitable sources for accurate measurement and modeling of facades. According to the literature, architectural building knowledge and human interaction are also necessary either in data-driven or model-driven methods. Based on the shortcomings of current methods, the objective of this proposal is to develop a method which utilizes image data, laser data, building knowledge and user interaction as input to generate accurate and detailed models of façades. To this end, I outline an algorithm in which data-driven and model-driven methods are employed to tackle the mentioned challenges of modeling.
