SCANNING USING A SMART PHONE FOR HERITAGE CONSERVATION: A Case Study Using the Reunion House
The project aims to provide alternative scanning methods for heritage conservation using portable devices and validate the data for serving certain preservation goals. It addresses the inequity in resources that limits the preservation of heritage sites and buildings. The proposed approach would make scanning technology more accessible to heritage conservation professionals. The objective is to keep the technology accessible enough for anyone to scan, document, and share what they consider valuable and significant, to benefit the protection of built environment, which may be physically inaccessible, endangered, or ignored.
