Abstract: Correct identification of heritage characteristics is a prerequisite for the conservation of historic structures. This study summarizes the developments in image-based documentation techniques and explores a way of combining them with conventional documentation techniques for architectural conservation. The processes of architectural photogrammetry and pictorial photography help the architect-conservator examine the many details of architectural heritage, making the assessment of heritage characteristics easier. Nevertheless, site observations and historical research are indispensable tools that support the evaluation process. A 19th centwy Ottoman church in western Turkey has been documented by combining the above techniques. Scaled drawings, a 3D model, maps on rectified image mosaics, and image albums make it possible to perceive the spatial qualities and conception of the original construction techniques, together with their alterations. The assessment results are presented in thematic tables with links to visual documents, and the heritage values and conservation problems of the church are clarified. Finally, this study illustrates one example of a successful heritage assessment leading to a conservation design.
