Abstract. In today's world, cooperation between companies that specialize in certain processes is important. There is a long term cooperation between the company GemaArt, focused on historical monument restoration and the Czech Technical University, Faculty of Civil Engineering, dept. of Geomatics, Laboratory of photogrammetry Since 2006, we have finished a lot of projects focused on historical monument care. In the frame of our last project, which was focused on the revitalization and restoration of the Prophet Nahum Shrine in Alqosh in the Iraqi Region of Kurdistan, the detailed documentation and geophysical research of the shrine was carried out in 2018. Close-range photogrammetry, UAV and laser scanning were used for the basic documentation. Several data merge experiments were performed during processing. Significant was the transfer of the main object to the VR, which allows viewing of the object by other professionals without a direct visit to the site and to preserve its original condition before reconstruction.
