Our primary aim is to set up a workflow for an accurate and efficient 3D recording of the archaeological heritage, in particular archaeological excavations, based on image-based 3D modeling. The research investigates:
- Field recording strategies to optimize the archaeological data collecting,
- Computer-vision technology to generate 3D models of excavations,
- GIS-integration of the 3D excavation data,
- Presentation of the (3D) archaeological excavation to the public.
The project started in February 2013 at the Department of Archaeology of Ghent University and is conducted in close collaboration with Ghent Archaeological Team bvba (GATE). Financial support is provided by the agency for Innovation by Science and Technology (IWT).
