Advanced Archaeological Training W5

Organiser | Stefan HOHMANN, Germany / Willem BEEX, The Netherlands / Giorgio VERDIANI, Italy
in collaboration with Kubit

In this workshop the participants will be able to work with a tachymeter, images and software in order to digitally create a drawing from (part of) a monument. The participants will also learn the several advantages and disadvantages of this method in order to fully appreciate this technique.

The workshop will be divided in three sessions:

–          Working with a tachymeter/total station
–          Taking useful pictures and using them for digital 3D modeling
–          Working with a handheld scanner

For each session a specific set of information will be given to enhance the abilities and improve the skills about this survey work on monuments and archaeological sites.

To all the participants it is suggested to bring their cameras (if available) to check it and verify its possible enhancements to allow a better picture taking according to the general workflow presented in the workshop.

Max. 10 participants with basic or medium knowledge of measurement techniques.
