Documentation of German Emperor Maximilian I's Tomb
Measuring Systems: ATOS
Keywords: Close range photogrammetry, laser scanning, data fusion, heritage documentation, visualization, conservation, project management
The cenotaph of Maximilian is located in the Hofkirche/Tirol. For centuries the tomb was separated from the visitors by a black iron lattice. In addition, the fine caved marble plates were covered by glass. Because of a basic conservation and restoration of the tomb, lattice and glass plates were removed for the first time ever since its construction in the 16th century. For a short period in May 2002 all sides were accessible. This time slot could be used for a complete metric documentation of the object.
