Course of action

It is intended to show that a virtual 3D model can be used to develop two applications that can be important to the preservation of historical monuments: - Documentation software that will allow us to locate sampling points and evaluate them in a virtual 3D model, thus making their location accessible. It is expected that the virtual location will allow for a better interpretation of the results of the investigation and thus also a deeper understanding of the conditions and technologies documented. - The 3D model thereby generated will serve as the basis for a second application that will make non-accessible areas virtually accessible to scientists and museums, and as a «fourth», optional dimension will allow us to view reconstructions of different historical states.
