Photogrammetry in Mediterranean Archaeology
MetadataShow full item record
Digital photogrammetry has progressed to a level at which it no longer requires expensive equipment or significant training in order to produce professional results. In the field of Mediterranean archaeology requirements for documentation and in particular digital documentation are increasing demanding new and innovative means to enable more sites to accomplish these results. During several field seasons working with people of the American School of Classical Studies in Athens, primarily in Ancient Corinth as well as several other Greek sites, modern methods in photogrammetric recording and processing have been explored in an attempt to produce highly accurate, quantifiable three dimensional documentation of archaeological site and artifacts within an extremely limited budget. This thesis explores the craft’s history, methodology and demonstrates using several real world examples how, with little or no money current goals can be achieved and offers a tutorial that can be used by other individuals hoping to produce similar results.
