The presentation will bring out a representative implementation example illustrating the work on 3D Imaging, Data Processing, and Metadata Management via SCDS’s metadataXTM, performed by SCDS PRO, and following its involvement in the International Project for “Survey, Study, Assessment and Conservation Plan for the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem”. SCDS PRO Inc. was founded in 2003, is based in Montreal, Canada, and also gathers operational capabilities from its affiliates located in Europe and Middle East. SCDS PRO and its affiliates own 1(one) Leica’s SS1, 4(four) SS2, associated Cyclone and CloudWorx software, and 2(two) short-range RSI systems. The concept offers a data management tool and project management tool easy to use and has the traditional features used in data and project management, but we emphasize a lot on configuration management, keeping track of the changes in the files in a very easy mechanism. This allowed, for example, stakeholders in seven different countries all to be collaborating and pulling information from the same files simultaneously on the Church of the Nativity project. The deliverables, which consumed some 1,500 man hours, include floor deformations computations and color charts; general plans, including horizontal cross-sections of more than 10 elevations; vertical and longitudinal cross-sections; interior and exterior views; wall deformation charts; columns shaping, vertically and horizontally slicing; main and secondary roofs trusses and roof slopes; grottoes plans and tri-directional cross-sections; and a simplified 3D model of the Main Basilica to be used as a metadataX viewer. This wide range of deliverables made designing and planning the optimum workflow very challenging especially when any structural piece, part, element or component of the Church of the Nativity is so valuable.
