Photogrammetric Analysis and 3D Modeling of Early Muslim Glazed Pottery Collection at Hazara University Museum, Pakistan
Keywords:Photogrammetry, Muslim, Glazed, Pottery, 3D reconstruction
Today, photogrammetric and 3D computer modeling is the essential and fundamental techniques utilized in archaeology and other heritage-related fields. In the areas of conservation, preservation, restoration, and mediation of architectural, archaeological, and cultural heritage, they offer essential responses to scientific needs. There aren't many computer-based automation tools for pottery
classification in the realm of archaeology. Lacking computer vision-assisted technologies, archaeologists are unable to see a full pot from a single shattered fragment in three dimensions. The strength and widespread use of computer-based automation techniques have not yet had a truly positive impact on Pakistan's archaeology. The methods for obtaining 3D data for fragments have been
extensively addressed, but the methods for virtual reconstruction have not received enough attention. There is a large collection of early Muslim glazed pottery housed in Hazara University Museum of Archaeology. The aim of the present study was to reconstruct and complete the object from pottery fragments and to determine the drawing, designs, and color combination of selected pottery. For this purpose, fragments of two different pots from the same collection were selected. The result of this study revealed a complete 3D model of each broken glazed ceramic pot with help of proposed techniques and computer applications.
