Paper Abstract

Restoration of a broken pottery for repair and reconstruction is the main aim of this project. IRAN is a country with more than 2500 years civilization. Archaeologists dug out potters which most of them were broken or in fragments. These potteries are our heritage and track tour ancient civilization; therefore, reconstruction of them is very important. The project is searching to find a way for restoration of the broken earthenware in the computer by using close range photogrammetry technique and CAD system. An earthenware was photographed and its model was restored in the computer by using a P33 stereo plotter and MicroStation. Then the earthenware was broken to small pieces and these parts were photographed again. Models of small pieces constructed in computer. Finally, a method was developed to restore the broken earthenware on the computer according to the initialized model.
