Abstract

The historic Walled City of Baku, Icherisheher, has been described as one of the best examples of a town that preserves the historical stratigraphy of more than a thousand years, reflecting a great number of influences. Through its history, the structures of Baku may have been rebuilt several times. In the realization of the project very different problem list are been faced, that have required the use and the implementation of separate instrumentations for different results: topographical survey, photographic survey, digital photoplanes and three-dimensional model of the historical center. Through GPS instrumentation and total station, a network of station points materialised on the ground and suitably monographic forms the basis for updating basic cartography and ensures topographic and geographic coordination of all the surveyed areas’ components. The survey was used both for general documentation and to execute digital photoplanes, digitally rectified mosaics obtained with purpose-built software with the aid of topographic points. The contemporary management of all the information has allowed to realize a three-dimensional model of the historic center of Baku for geometric and planning analysis or for virtual navigations. The request to produce a model in formed VRML she has addressed the choice of the methodic ones to employ in the modeling. First analysis has concerned the urbanistic structure of the city and the distinction of single areas individualized as single objects and with different degree of detail. Parallelly to the activities of modeling, they have been prepared the necessary images to be applied to the faces of the model. An objective was that to make the enjoyable product to the collectivity through virtual navigations and to increase the accessibility and the understanding of the contents. To scientific purpose the same model, with greater quality of images and further accuracy, he can be used for projects of intervention, finalized to the documentation and the historical knowledge of the city of Baku.
