WS2 The Use of 3D GIS Platforms for Intra-Site Investigation in Archaeology

Nicolo’ Dell’Unto, Matteo Dellepiane, Marco Callieri, Giacomo Landeschi

In the last decade archaeological documentation strategies have been considerably improved by the use of advanced 3D acquisition systems. The systematic use of Laser scanning, photogrammetry and computer vision, in support of intra-site archaeological investigation, provides archaeologists with new opportunities to document and analyse archaeological sites. Moreover, the possibility   to visualize and manage 3D texturized models into a GIS platform have procured the opportunity to reconstruct and visualize, in three dimensions, the spatial and temporal relations between the different data acquired during the field investigation process.

During this workshop different workflows of data development and implementation will be presented. In specific, different strategies to generate, geo-reference and analyze 3D models will be discussed through the review of some case studies. Finally the inclusion of high-resolution models, new mechanism of interaction for navigation and annotation will be discussed.
