Preserving Slovakian Heritage Workshop
In June 2021 CyArk and Capturing Reality partnered to provide a joint training workshop on 3D Documentation for students from the Academy Arts in Banská Bystrica and the Technical University of Košice. The Preserving Slovakian Heritage Workshop resulted in new skills for Slovakian youth and provides an opportunity to strengthen ties between Slovakia and the United States through cultural and technical exchange.
Virtual Workshop on Photogrammetry
CyArk provided a two week long virtual workshop on 3D digital documentation of cultural heritage to 25 students and faculty from the Academy Arts in Banská Bystrica and the Technical University of Košice. Trainees were shipped the necessary equipment in advance of the workshop so they could follow along at home. The two week long trained students how to document historic sites using photogrammetry and process the resulting images with Capturing Reality, the fastest software solution for producing virtual reality scenes and 3D models.
3D Digital Documentation
Following the virtual workshop, participants documented a variety of structures in their hometowns using the techniques they learned in the course. At the end of each work day participants transferred the data back to CyArk staff who reviewed and provided feedback. In total over 5,000 images were taken of the sites. All the images were processed together by the students to generate accurate 3D models. The resulting data will serve as an inventory of the sites and will be made available for research and education on OpenHeritage3D.org.
