Photogrammetry and virtual reality
In use only for a few years, 3D recording and visualization techniques are becoming increasingly important in archaeology. The applications are varied and beneficial at all stages of the archaeologist’s work. Photogrammetric recording, a technique that allows the creation of a 3D model from photographs, is applicable both for surveys – using aerial, airplane or drone photos – and for excavations by monitoring all the stages of excavation. These models can then be easily manipulated at will, they are measurable, and they allow the production of maps through GIS.
Archaïos is using these techniques in its various field projects and also for scientific publication and mediation. 3D environments can also serve as a basis for virtual tours for the general public, and more generally for heritage awareness.
