Summary

The paper presents an image-based scene reconstruction algorithm for the 3D documentation of a lighter boat from the Gold Rush Era. It follows the structure-from-motion approach and uses low-cost equipment that is part of the standard documentation procedure at an archaeological site---a digital camera and a total station. Points measured with the total station are used to transform the model into the projected coordinate systems used at the excavation site such that measuring and geo-referencing becomes possible.
