Architectural heritage is essential in our culture and needs to be preserved as part of our tradition. There are various methods and technologies that have used to preserve and present architectural structure. One of which are 3D models. Two-dimensional drawings and architecture representations are now integrated into 3D models formed by 3D digitization.
Digital recording of architectural structures may help in the preservation of architectural heritage. There are some organizations which prove that it is important to record cultural heritage monuments and provide proper documentation. 3D digitization is composed of multiple methods that lead to the complete recording of a monument. The methods are classified below:
All these methods can be applied to cultural architecture recording. 3D digitization is a multi-dimensional process where the main goal is to preserve architectural heritage and to promote cultural content.
