Data Base of Historic Monuments of Architecture for the Purpose of Diagnosis and Monitoring of Restoration Works

Bonawentura Maciej PawlickiThe Cracow University of Technology [email protected]


The Database of Architectural Monuments is the system witch is being realized within the confines of research project Grant no. (5 T07F 001 23) entitled Monitoring of historical monuments preservation, with the use of contemporary computer systems in Division of History of Architecture and Monument Preservation Institute of History of Architecture and Monument Preservation Faculty of Architecture Cracow University of Technology in cooperation with Section of Information Technology Institute of Computing Science Cracow University of Technology. Research has been done under Ph. D. Professor arch. Bonawentura Maciej Pawlicki and Ph. D. Mieczysław Drabowski guidance.


The aim of the research

is to make multimedia system concerning monuments, which would be put in practice in preservation works, with aid of taking decisions and in making information available for professionals and wide range of users as well. The system should store and enable efficient searching out of data concerning monuments, estimating dangers and gaining reports about its actual state. The project should also be useful during teaching, in the field of history of architecture and monuments preservation, making it possible to create questionnaires for selected objects.


Metods of access to the datadase

CONTEXT SEARCHING - context access to the database of historic monuments of architecture means selecting a specific object from the list of all monuments available in the base. Displaying the list of monuments is possible by selecting the option CONTEXT SEARCHING from the menu of the top module HISTORIC MONUMENTS.

GIS SEARCHING - is a different form of access to the data. It is based on maps and plans, as well as on the monuments located on them. After selecting the option GIS SEARCHING, the appropriate form is displayed.


This publication aims at development and activation of the database for the purpose of further studies and restoration projects pertaining to the Cracow historic buildings complex. The base application has taken into account the latest research on the space organization and arrangement of houses of the 1st and 2nd stage in the area of the oldest settlement (“Okol”) situated at the foot of the Wawel Hill, from the period prior to the Great Chartering of Krakow in 1257. It presents the buildings situated in Kanonicza Street, inter alia: The Długosz House, (25 Kanonicza st.), the Bishop Erazm Ciołek Palace (17 Kanonicza st.), Collegium Iuridicum (25 Grodzka st.), Wit Stwosz House (39 Grodzka st.).


Reports on the Monuments of Historic Value

  • From the module Historic Monuments, the user may gain access to three reports containing various information on each object in the base, through the inventory of historic monuments or through GIS searching.

Report on an Object of Historic Value

The report on an object of historic value is the most concise identification of an object, which gives only the basic details. It contains the following information: the basic data, address, identificators, owners (in chronological order), as well as selected visual documentation (4 photographs, sketches or location maps) which best characterizes the given object.


The Historic Object Card

The button DETAILS displays the Historic Object Card, i.e. a full report with all the data on a given historic object collected in the base. The data comprise: the basic information, the addresses of the object, identificators, academic and historic value, the authors of the work, the builders, owners, users, investors, the state of preservation, realization stages, inspections, bibliography, events, photographic documentation and the status of the record.


The Historic Object Card – Short Version

The button SUMMARY on the right side of each item on the list of historic objects displays a short version of the historic object card. It is meant for the users who are not fully authorized to view the data. This report contains only limited information, which is not classified. The following details are displayed: the basic information, addresses, identificators, the authors of the work, builders, bibliography, visual documentation and the status of the record. The form of this report is the same as in the case of the full historic object card.
