Rectified Photo Mosaic

The photo-mosaics constitute layers of the CAD drawings. In this project, the digital images were planned to have sufficient resolution (pixels) allowing printing, along with the drawings, in paper sizes up to A0.

Rectified Photo Mosaic Detail

The association of distortion-free and scaled photographic information - with the CAD photogrammetric drawing, yields effective documentation of complex details and artwork.

Files were saved to CD ROM disks, allowing easy and flexible reproduction in various sizes and details, right on the restoration site and according to each use, making them an extremely useful restoration and maintenance tool. 

As for historic documentation, they were plotted in archival acid-free paper and also turned into regular high-quality photographic negatives and copies.
