MULTI-SENSOR 3D RECORDING PIPELINE FOR THE DOCUMENTATION OF JAVANESE TEMPLES
3D recording is an important procedure in the conservation of heritage sites. This past decade, a myriad of 3D sensors has appeared in the market with different advantages and disadvantages. Most notably, the laser scanning and photogrammetry methods have become some of the most used techniques in 3D recording. The integration of these different sensors is an interesting topic, one which will be discussed in this paper. Integration is an activity to combine two or more data with different characteristics to produce a 3D model with the best results. The discussion in this study includes the process of acquisition, processing, and analysis of the geometric quality from the results of the 3D recording process; starting with the acquisition method, registration and georeferencing process, up to the integration of laser scanning and photogrammetry 3D point clouds. The final result of the integration of the two point clouds is the 3D point cloud model that has become a single entity. Some detailed parts of the object of interest draw both geometric and textural information from photogrammetry, while laser scanning provided a point cloud depicting the overall overview of the building. The object used as our case study is Sari Temple, located in Special Region of Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
