Last week, with the permission of the Orthadox Patriachcy, Lidar specialist Bora Yavuz ( and I did a 3D Scanning survey for the Panaghia Paramithia Church in Fener, Balat. In the last decade, the importance of Photogrammetry and Laser scanning for cultural heritage has dramatically grown, allowing a fast and very accurate 3D survey and reconstruction of architectural heritage. Moreover, the resulting 3D model also enables the exploration of the structure in Virtual Reality which can be used as a powerful tool for cultural education and entertainment.
