RESULTS

3D MODELS OF AUSTRO-HUNGARIAN FORTS

The 3D digital models of the forts were generated from the original design drawings, integrated with information acquired through laser scanning and photogrammetric surveys.


Two different design drawings (1909 and 1914, Archivio Storico di Trento) of Sommo Alto fort (werk Sommo).

Laser scanning acquisitions (left) and photogrammetric network (right) for werk Verle and werk Sommo, respectively.

The Dosso delle Somme fort (Serrada werk) located at 1670 m a.s.l. and constructed between 1910 and 1914. It spans ca 110 m and could host ca 160 persons. A historical image (Centro Documentazione Luserna), its actual state of conservation and a digital 3D reconstruction overlapped to the actual landscape.

Integration of the produced 3D textured model in the actual landscape: werk Sommo (left) and werk Serrada (right).

3D MODELS OF WAR FINDINGS

Many objects used by Austro-Hungarian and Italian soldiers during the war were found on the plateaux of Luserna, Lavarone and Folgaria and are now preserved at the Centro Documentazione Luserna. The war findings were digitised using 3D scanning and photogrammetric techniques.

 

a) Austro-Hungarian helmet
b) Italian helmet
c) Water bottle
d) Ditmar lamp
e) Osmeka DB lamp
f) Hand grenade
g) Spiked club
h) Reinforced glasses

 

RE-PHOTOGRAPHING

Re-photographing is the technique that aims at finding the position from which an historical image was taken in order to go back there and shoot e a new picture of the same area.

 

Example of re-photographing: Lusern fort

TOTEM / COMMUNICATION PANELS

Images of the digitally reconstructed fortresses were used inside communication panels located close to the heritage monuments.
