Digitally Documenting D-Day: The use of Close Range Digital Photogrammetry at Pointe du Hoc
SIGraDi 2005 - [Proceedings of the 9th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Lima - Peru 21-24 november 2005, vol. 2, pp. 634-639
This paper describes the progress of a multi-disciplinary team from Texas A&M University to digitally document the command post at one of the most significant historic sites of the D-Day landings: Pointe du Hoc. The methods used to collect survey data for both the production of 2D Historic American Building Survey drawings and for the 3D digital model are described. The processes used to produce the 3D digital model involves collecting survey data using digital photogrammetry and then applying surfaces to that model using modeling software. The results of the first seasonís survey work are described and illustrated. Finally, the problems encountered with lighting and the digital photogrammetry processing are discussed and recommendations made for future work.
