Photogrammetric Recording of 19th-Century Lake Champlain Steamboats: Shelburne Shipyard Steamboat Graveyard 2015.
In June 2015, Texas A&M University, the Institute of Nautical Archaeology and the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum hosted a field school at Shelburne Bay, Lake Champlain. Along with manual recording by archaeologists, the team applied photogrammetric recording (Agisoft PhotoScan) to Wreck 2. The goal of this recording was to create an accurate 1/1 scale constrained model to use as archaeological data. However, low visibility of the water (2-4 ft.) and the sheer size of the wreck (135 ft. 6 in. in length) created difficult conditions to apply photogrammetry. This talk will share various hints on how we successfully created an accurate 1/1-scale constrained photogrammetric model of Wreck 2 at the Shelburne site, despite these adverse conditions.
