In May 2018, investigations resumed in block 4-6 of the archaeological site of Paestum. Under a cooperation agreement between the Paestum Archaeological Park, the Naples University “L’Orientale” and the Interdepartmental Centre for Archaeology Services (CISA), the analyses focused on the area of the private dwellings and of the bath complex that make up the block, located in the south-western part of the site. The captures by RPAS (Remotely Piloted Aircraft) with RGB, thermal and multi-spectrum sensors were supplemented with terrestrial photogrammetric surveys. The digital products and three-dimensional models processed were the starting point for the production of a detailed plan of what is still visible on the ground, supplemented by an analytical description of the existing masonry structures. The orthophotos extracted from the 3D digital replica will be used as the basis for the stratigraphic cataloguing of the walls, floors and thresholds of both private and public buildings and the baths. What is more, through the analysis of the walls and construction techniques, implementation was started of a BIM (Building Information Modelling) application for managing and reconstructing the residential and bath structures.
