Capiteles sevillanos. Técnicas avanzadas para su documentación gráfica

B. Molero Alonso, José Antonio Barrera Vera, E. Cabrera Revuelta


Recent developments in the field of documentation of cultural heritage using digital photogrammetry and scanning have led to a renewed interest in techniques and processes that are being used to get geometric models of heritage. So far, however, there has been little discussion about the definition of standardized processes in order to ensure homogeneity and interoperability.
On the other hand, very valuable information of the buildings is contained by capitals. The aim of our research is to get a protocol in the documentation of this kind of architectural elements, through the use and comparison of new technologies in the graphic documentation. For this purpose, we have used photogrammetric techniques and optical scanners in order to obtain field data, specialized software management and modeling point clouds for the development of textured 3D models and graphic design software that allows us to analyze and disseminate the results.
