ABSTRACT

Cultural heritage represent the way of living developed by humans and it is passed through time to a generation from another. It will always be a part from our history, and if we lose it we will lose our identity, that is why its preservation is very important. Preserving the cultural heritage is always a hard task which implies a lot of people, starting with archaeologists, architects, geodesic engineers and builders. Each of these people have to work together in order to achieve an optimum result. Photogrammetry is the science of using bi-dimensional images to make accurate measurements in 3D. It has two main study areas: Far Range Photogrammetry (Aerial Photogrammetry) and Close Range Photogrammetry (Terrestrial Photogrammetry). The main object of Close Range Photogrammetry is the object reconstruction using bidimensional images simultaneously; the images are taken from different perspective in order to ensure an optimum geometry. In the paper bellow we aim to highlight the geodesic engineer work in order to achieve a tri-dimensional model, by acquiring bi-dimensional images in order to process them with specific software. The studied object is a rooftop entrance of a trullo, an Italian traditional house from Alberobello.
