A Comparison Of Photogrammetric Software For Three-Dimensional Modeling Of Maritime Archaeological Objects

Author(s): William L Fleming

Year: 2018

Summary

Multi-photograph digital photogrammetry, a powerful tool for archaeologists, is quickly gaining traction for site and object recording and reproduction. As technology advances, new software packages are being developed, but are all packages the same? Does one software package have any advantages over another? Is one software package more useful in certain situations than another? These questions will be explored by recording the ventilation engines recovered from the wreck of the USS Monitor, running the photographs through multiple photogrammetry programs, and comparing workflow in addition to the resultant datasets and digital meshes. An assessment of data processing sequences and challenges in addition to allied technologies such as three-dimensional printing will also be carried out.
