WARMEST App Prototype - Tools survey

What is it?

CTA has made the Warmest App Prototype, which allows you to view collected data about cultural heritage sites in three locations:

  • Alhambra – The Lions Court in Granada, Spain
  • Basilica di Santa Croce – Pazzi Chapel in Florence, Italy
  • Maritime Heritage, Marzamemi in Sicily, Italy

What is it for?

It is a tool for monitoring changes in monuments. We would like to show all changes occurring in monuments on a timeline (photos, thermographic images). User is able to choose elements from the 3D scene to investigate.

Based on 3D model, system masks everything except the pointed element. The process runs on all photos. On the end system return masked photos for pointed element ready to compere.

How does it work?

Click the “START” button on Welcome Page to go to the map screen and select desired location, then click on any blue marker displayed on the map to see details about particular location.

If you would like to see all data you should click “SHOW COLLECTED DATA” button to view the timeline of collected data at this site.

Next page shows a 3D model and summary of the selected location. Objects that have viewable data are colored red when you hover your mouse on them.
To view collected data for particular object, hover your mouse over the object. When the object color is changed to red, click Left Mouse Button to go to the timeline.

Map controls

  • Hold Left Mouse Button to rotate the camera
  • Hold Right Mouse Button to pan the camera
  • Use Mouse Scroll Wheel to zoom in/out
  • You can also use on-screen buttons to zoom in/out

Next page shows a timeline of the selected object. The timeline is divided into three categories:

  • Photos – shows markers for every month in selected range if there was any photo taken at this time.
  • Thermal – shows markers for every month in selected range if there was any photo taken with a thermal camera at this time.
  • 3D scans – shows markers for every month in selected range if a 3D scan of an object was taken during that time.

To select a date range, move the slider on the first timeline (with the name “Timeline”). Currently, the size of the slider corresponds to one year time span.

The light-purple parts of the main timeline indicate that there is a data snapshot available at that point in time. When the slider overlaps the light-purple part, a marker associated with a data snapshot will appear on a timeline corresponding to it’s type.

Click on the marker to see a preview of the snapshot that will appear at the bottom of the timeline panel.

If you want to see the larger picture, or view the whole collection of data (if selected data snapshot contains more than one item), click on the magnifying glass in the upper left corner of the preview.

Does it integrate with other systems? How?

Yes it’s possible. Of course it depends on the tool which you want to integrate. For example, it is possible to integrate databases etc. Other systems can easily import other annotations.

What benefits does it bring to the user?

The app allows users to quickly compare changes occurring in monuments. It is a web application, which everyone can use regardless of their operating system.

To whom it can serve?

The Warmest App Prototype is attuned to aid cultural heritage practitioners, conservators, scholars, people who analyze changes in monuments, people involved in historic preservation, historians.



First of all, we would like to thank you for your availability to collaborate in a study designed by researchers from the WARMEST´S project.

Your participation will be essential for the success of this work. Specifically, we would like you to answer honestly a series of questions about your experience with your volunteer tourism program. The estimated duration of the survey is about 10 minutes.

Remember that there are no correct answers and that your sincerity is essential to guarantee the rigor of the investigation.

The information you voluntarily provide and the data collected is completely anonymous and will be analyzed in an aggregated manner to carry out statistical analysis for scientific research purposes.

Kind regards and thanks again!

This survey is anonymous.

The record of your survey responses does not contain any identifying information about you, unless a specific survey question explicitly asked for it.

If you used an identifying token to access this survey, please rest assured that this token will not be stored together with your responses. It is managed in a separate database and will only be updated to indicate whether you did (or did not) complete this survey. There is no way of matching identification tokens with survey responses.
