Efficient and Effective in situ Heritage Management: Using 3D photomodels to document and assess a site's condition.

Summary

Archaeological work and cultural heritage management are significantly limited by time, personnel, and financial resources.  Many submerged and terrestrial archaeological sites are fragile, and are located in easily accessible areas, leaving them exposed to destructive processes.  The successful management of our cultural heritage involves regularly monitoring each site, but most management groups lack sufficient resources to conduct detailed surveys that include metrics, qualitative assessments, and comprehensive visual documentation.  The use of three-dimensional, photographic modeling techniques can overcome many of these logistical issues by contributing substantial and informative data that can visually document a site accurately, and provide the means to measure, describe, and assess the condition and risks present.
