Description Icon


The monument is located in the middle of a cultivable area on the west coast of the Vistonida lake in Xanthi, Greece. It is considered as one of the most important Ottoman monuments in the area and it may have been built in the late 15th century. It was possibly built on the ruins of an Orthodox Christian temple that was dedicated to Saint George Kalamitziotis.

Model Use

The different versions (geometry and texture resolutions) gives the ability for the digital replica of the monument to be used in a wide range of applications related to visualisation and dissemination.

Processing Pipeline

Processing Pipeline

The data collection phase included partial scans using TOF laser scanning, terrestrial and aerial photoshooting along with total station and emperical measurements on strong features on the surface of the monument. The post processing included cleaning and alignment of the partial laser scans, the 3D reconstruction of the image sequences using an SFM implementation (Agisoft Photoscan). Texture mapping was implemented within the SFM software and the 3D model versioning and video sequence generation was performed with the help of Meshlab and Blender.
