We started working on the virtual reconstruction with the preparation of a detailed plan of the camp. In order to create it, we used all available materials, including:
– current satellite imagery
– historical aerial photos taken by the Allies
– cartographic plans, etc.
The processing of the above materials led us to create an accurate map of the camp in high resolution, which further served as the basis for:
– the placement of specific types of buildings,
– analysis of the layout and types of power poles, fences and power lines
– distribution, width and depth of the ditches
– scheme of a railway line, road network, pathways and trodden paths.
