Institute of Archaeology

Archaeological 3D Documentation in Practice.
Photogrammetry, Scanning and Modeling

When: 26th September 2012
Where: Dvorana zemljepisnega muzeja, Gosposka ul. 16, Ljubljana


These lectures will provide an overview of 3D documentation technologies currently in use in archaeology, with an emphasis on photogrammetric modeling. Practical issues of data capture, processing and analysis will be discussed and the problems of disseminating and publishing these data will be outlined. The content is at an introductory level, aimed at archaeologists considering using these techniques in their work, or wishing to better understand 3D modeling technologies in general.

Lecturers: Benjamin Štular and Rachel Opitz from the Institute of Archaeology and Rok Klasinc (Tica Sistem d.o.o.)

Lectures will be in English and Slovene.
