3-D Photo Modeling Applications in Underwater Archeology

Author(s): Brett Seymour

Year: 2015

Summary

Recent advances in 3-D modeling technologies have entered the field of Archeology. The Submerged Resources Center (SRC) of the National Park Service has begun using this technology in the field of Underwater Archeology. Using the Autodesk program ReCap and underwater digital photography SRC photographers have been able to create 3-D models of discreet features and more recently of whole sites. This paper will introduce the technology of 3-D point clouds and compare the final products of the 3-D models to traditional underwater mapping methods as well a hybrid approach that combine previous methods and new technologies to map underwater archeological sites.
