Notes

Abstract:
This image (#5) is in high definition and is able to be magnified to reveal important surface details. The image was developed from 3D laser scanning and modeling using two imaging techniques utilizing phase based scanning and white light (higher resolution) surface scanning. The N’shan Church contains several areas of inscription and palimpsest areas where stucco and color obscure the carved surfaces and make their discernment difficult. Utilizing our laser scanned models, we can remove color and change the occlusion, shadowing, and rendering of surfaces to enhance resolution and visualize more completely. These images and 3D models are assisting conservators at this significant World Heritage site, as well as made available to international researchers, presenting important architecture and inscriptions from Armenia.
Acquisition:
We would like to thank the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, Catholicosate of All Armenians for their support and participation in this project.
