Photorealism at an Archaeological Site near Mission San Luis Obispo, California
Recent construction activities have triggered archaeological planning and research, showing the importance of area excavation for understanding land use between and among structures associated with Mission San Luis Obispo. Historical archaeology exposed Mission-related water conveyance features and lands used for Native American living, agricultural, and food-processing areas during the Mission period. ESA teamed with the Cultural Heritage Engineering Initiative at UCSD to capture aerial and terrestrial images for Structure-from-Motion photogrammetry and produce ortho-rectified photo mosaics of the archaeological site. This advanced mapping and photorealism helps to document, imagine, and interpret site uses, and provides a unique platform for public interpretation.
