Subject: Documentation

I'm working to prepare, with a group of documentation experts, the
GraDoc (Graphic Documentation Systems in Conservation of Mural
Paintings) meeting (see below), where I will be involved, as member
of the ICR (Istituto Centrale per il Restauro), in Computer Aided
Documentation. I'm collecting digital experiences in the field of
mural Painting documentation (mainly digital Condition report based
on vector  software) to have a complete view and an understanding
of the advantages and disadvantages in computer aided documentation
versus manual documentation. Does anyone has experiences and/or
articles or paper?

The final goal is the production of a bibliography and share this
kind of information via web. For a better understanding of the aims
and the goals of the seminar see
<URL:> or the Italian
translation on  the ICR'r Web site on

Here you have an extract from the ICCROM page:

    "The seminar aims at creating a platform for the productive
    interchange of ideas and the establishment of personal contacts
    amongst professionals with vast experience in this topic;
    defining the basic principles for the graphic documentation of
    mural paintings]  drafting guidelines, which specify the aims
    and indicate minimum requirements as well as desirable options;
    evaluating recent applications, including computer-aided
    systems; and eventually  establishing on-going contacts amongst
    documentation specialists and users".

Any help would be very appreciated,

Giancarlo Buzzanca
