GIS-BASED MAP GENERATION USING NEW SURVEY TECHNIQUES

Balqies Sadoun, Omar Al-Bayari

Abstract

Conservation of historical sites depends on acquiring all data related to their life history and their shape. We are using modern survey technologies such as GPS, satellite images, photogrammetry and classical instrumentation to build a Geographic Information System (GIS), digital library and precise base map with all its embedded benefits at a low cost. GIS offers digital documentation of the site and its surrounding environment, which is essential for the conservation and protection process of any heritage. In this work we are presenting GIS, digital base map and an orthophoto for a newly established museum and its surrounding to be used in GIS modeling. Global Positioning System (GPS) precise measurements and a high resolution satellite image were used to produce a Digital Terrain Model (DTM) and an orthophoto for the site in order to create a three Dimensional model (3D). Finally, GIS and (3D) texture model for the museum were produced to conserve, protect, monitor and manage the facility. It offered as well, the scheme to create a web site to post all acquired information to publicize the new museum and the ability to employ any modern location based service (LBS) technologies (emergency, security, guiding etc.).
