Use of the microgravity technique for cavity detection in the exploration of historical buildings requires careful data acquisition and modern processing procedures. We have developed a new method for the calculation of building effects, where geodetic measurements and special photogrammetric software are used. In our new approach, a three-dimensional polyhedral model of an historical building is created from images using Eos System’s PhotoModeler Scanner software. A comparison of equations for the calculation of the gravitational effect of polyhedral bodies is presented on a simple test model. The methodology of microgravity data processing is demonstrated on a small Slovak church, where two crypts were successfully detected using microgravity and GPR techniques in summer 2009. We have shown that close range photogrammetry methods offer a possibility to improve the microgravity data processing procedure.
