A Cloud Architecture for Processing and Visualization of Geo-located 3D Digital Cultural Heritage Models

Ikrom Nishanbaev

Abstract

The increasing affordability of surveying methods such as laser scanning and photogrammetry has aroused broad and current interest in 3D modelling among cultural heritage preservation specialists. This generated, in recent years, many digital cultural heritage preservation projects across the globe that aimed at documenting cultural heritage sites and objects in a 3D form. Once 3D cultural heritage models have been created, the next step is generally to assure their long-term digital storage, dissemination, and visualization. To this end, this article presents a new cloud architecture for processing and visualization of geo-located 3D cultural heritage models over the web, which has been accomplished by integrating maps, 3D cultural heritage models, and the geospatial data associated with the location of 3D cultural heritage models. The cloud architecture is based on Amazon Web Services, while the core framework for handling the content is managed by free and open-source, database-driven, easy-to-implement KeystoneJS Content Management System. All other frameworks used in the architecture such as for web mapping, 3D visualization, etc. are also based on free and open-source paradigm, which allows flexibility on extensions and re-use. The proposed architecture has been validated through a use-case applied to Australian 3D cultural heritage models.
