Summary

The Templete´ is a sunken temple at the archaeological site of Tiwanaku in Bolivia. The structure is notable for a series of unique carved stone heads. It is located east of the larger kalasasaya monument in Tiwanaku.

The Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies (CAST), University or Arkansas conducted a high density survey of the temple in 2005. The scans from the 2005 survey are available at the following tDAR URL: https://core.tdar.org/sensory-data/391586.

CAST researchers acquired supplemental scans of the Templete´ in 2006. The scans from the 2006 survey, as well as the final registered point cloud and polygonal mesh that are a result of the combined 2005/2006 surveys are provided here.

Description of Final Datasets for Archive:

Original scans (unedited, prior to registration) in e57 format, transformation matrices for each scan, registered point cloud in ASCII format, polygonal mesh in OBJ format. NOTE: Prior to registration all scans were edited to remove extraneous data. The edited scans were imported into Polyworks IMAlign (and gridded) and then registered. The transformation matrices from the edited scans were exported and are provided here with the original, unedited scans. The final registered point cloud has also been provided as a single ASCII file. The polygonal mesh was created from the registered point cloud and has been post processed (hole-filled, smoothed etc...).
