Heritage Preservation: Tangible Heritage: The Documentation of the Ministry of Awqaf Drawings
مشروع توثيق وتسجيل لوحات وزارة الأوقاف-الإسكندرية
This is a joint project between Alex Med and the Egyptian Ministry of Awqaf (Endowments). The main objective is to document and classify the information from a collection of about 450 drawings and plates from the Ministry of Awqaf. These drawings, which are of mosques, houses and hammams in Alexandria, were firstly scanned in the digital laboratories of the Information Technology Department of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina. They were then analyzed and classified according to location, building type, architect and year of construction. The extracted data is placed on a database available to scholars and researchers of the history of buildings in Alexandria.
