Parthenon Symposia: Parthenon Symposium On the Sacred Rock: the Athenian Acropolis from the Drawing
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Acropolis of Athens is one of the most striking and complete ancient monumental
complexes in existence, an architectural treasure that belongs not only to
Greek patrimony but to worldwide cultural heritage. On Thursday, March 28, Dr.
Theodora Moullou, archaeologist with the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and
Sports, will review efforts to document the Acropolis from 1975 until today,
particularly the 3D recording of the Acropolis and its monuments through the
long-term project that she led, Development of Geographical Information Systems
on the Acropolis of Athens.
Moullou will discuss the motivation and aims of the €900,000 project,
describing the techniques used for data acquisition and processing—both
geodetic and photogrammetric—and presenting results and deliverables. Along the
way, she will reflect on challenges as well as successes. Today the tremendous
value of this project is apparent in the published and posted results (https://acropolis-gis.ysma.gr/), and
by the fact that the data have already been used in other research and
restoration work on the Acropolis monuments and underlying rock.
