The Information Technology for the Conservation and Inheritance of Architecture Culture Heritage Laboratory by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism at the School of Architecture has been committed to the research and data collection of the Ming Great Wall for a long time.
Focusing on the whole line of the Great Wall, the laboratory studied the defense system of the Great Wall and used UAV to capture the Wall’s status quo images, forming a massive data library of more than 700,000 (now 1 million) photos. With these photos, the laboratory has built a Defense System Spatial Database and an Image and 3D Database of the Great Wall of the Ming Dynasty. The databases which are soon to go online will provide a comprehensive data channel for the research, monitoring and public display of the Great Wall. For the first time, the public can browse the dual database system online to learn about the latest research results of the Great Wall.
