CHC, CRDF is surveying and documenting traditional wooden havelis of Gujarat as a part of Endangered Wooden Architecture Program (EWAP) hosted by Oxford Brookes University and delivered in collaboration with CyArk. The CHC team completed the first training session from 13th to 17th Feb 2023 with Rob Kesack, a Field Capture Specialist from Cyark. The training focused on learning and practicing Photogrammetry and LiDar 3D laser scanning. It equips the researchers for methodical data collection on site with digital tools. Aim of this research is to document wooden architecture that is endangered because of neglect, conflict or environmental circumstances. These records will be maintained for the long-term within an open-access digital repository and in a process foster new collaborations and initiatives, and raise awareness and appreciation of the value and significance of wooden architecture.
