Research in building history

Photographic images are an essential source to access research questions of architectural history, allowing historians to identify formal patterns, singularities, and discontinuities in architecture and cityscape.

Georeferencing of historic photographs

Application-oriented tools for photogrammetric analysis of historical photographs are integrated into the process of historical image analysis, to create a spatial relationship to today’s situation.

Location-based access to photos

Location-dependent augmented reality representations can be used as information base, research tool, and to communicate historical knowledge.

Research using image repositories

Our aim is to enable historians to locate, analyze, contextualize and compare meaningful and relevant photographic sources, as well as to make the objects depicted therein conceivable.
