However, its preservation and documentation require precise tools and strategies. In recent years, remote sensing methods and geographic information systems (GIS) have become indispensable instruments in cultural heritage inventory, monitoring and protection. The article is devoted to the problem of documenting and visualising the complex monument of landscape art, "Stryiskyi Park" in Lviv. The methodology and technology of creating a park information and reference system in the ArcGIS software environment are investigated. The reference and information system for Stryi Park was developed using ArcGis software modules. Taking into account the functionality of the ArcGis desktop geographic information system, data was collected using the cartometric method, and two- and three-dimensional digital models of the park were created, showing tourist attractions of natural and historical significance. A library of three-dimensional symbols was used to model the objects. Taking into account the complexity of the park landscape, 2D and 3D digital elevation models were created in ArcMap and ArcScene software modules, which significantly increase the efficiency of the Stryi Park reference geographic information system. A tabular database of park objects has been organised, which contains both attributive, descriptive, information and graphic information about the park objects in the form of photographs and video files obtained as a result of own photography and three-dimensional modelling of monuments in the ReCap360 software.</p> Zoriana Kuzyk Jakub Markiewicz Dorota Zawieska Copyright (c) 2024 Journal of Modern Technologies for Cultural Heritage Preservation 2024-03-29 2024-03-29 3 1 The critical evaluation of Multi-View Stereo approaches in 3D dense reconstruction for Cultural Heritage objects <p>The article aimed to analyse the possibilities of using Multi-View Stereo algorithms implemented in commercial (Agisoft Metashape and Pix4D) and open-source (OpenMVS 2.0) solutions. To critically assess the correctness of 3D shape mapping, the following parameters were analysed: density of point cloud, planarity and roughness distribution. The analysis used photos obtained from three different types of sensors, i.e. the Hasselblad H6d-100 medium format camera (fragment of frescoes - Test Site I), low-cost Olympus C-5050Z (fragment of archaeological excavations - Test Site II) and Canon Mark II (fragment of a historic room). The analyses performed show that the best results were obtained for point clouds generated using the Agisoft Metashape software and worse for Pix4D. Evaluating the results obtained for the OpenMVS, it can be noted that better quality in terms of geometric accuracy was obtained for the patch-based algorithm than for the semi-global matching algorithm. The choice between Agisoft Metashape and OpenMVS2.0 depends on the user's knowledge and experience in programming and photogrammetry, as OpenMVS does not provide a user interface but provides an open-source alternative to Metashape.</p> Jakub Markiewicz Arnadi Murtiyoso Karol Karwel Copyright (c) 2024 Journal of Modern Technologies for Cultural Heritage Preservation 2024-03-29 2024-03-29 3 1
