Using Iphone Camera for Photogrammetry

I mentioned before I recently received an Iphone 4s, and having been a strong supporter of Windows against Apple, I am slowly being converted over. Apart from the great thing of being able to carry my models around and show fellow archaeologists without risking the life of my laptop, I have started exploring the advantages …

Viewing Photogrammetric Models on iPhone/iPad

Since very recent I used to look at the iPhone and the iPad with a pinch of scepticism, as I believed it to be simply a less powerful laptop, mainly used for games and the occasional note taking. I've always been a Windows user, but last month I was given an old iPhone and I'm …

Program Overview: Meshlab

When writing my third year dissertation a few months ago I analysed a basic method of creating photogrammetric models using 123D Catch, and when it came to discussing the later editing of the models the program I turned to was Meshlab. I'd originally come across this program when looking at the Ducke, Scores and Reeves …

Virtual Museums: Combining 3D Modelling, Photogrammetry and Gaming Software

I wrote the post below yesterday night, but since it was written I've managed to create at least a part of what is described in the text, which is shown in the video above. Hence keep in mind that the rest of the post may be slightly different from what is in the video. One …

The Winged Victory of Samothrace: Analysis of the Images

This is a continuation of my blog from yesterday, so I suggest you read that first. One of the things I've been working on the past month is creating a photogrammetric model of monuments using nothing but tourists' photographs. After many attempts my last test, using the Winged Victory of Samothrace as a model, seemed …

The Winged Victory of Samothrace Reconstructed Digitally Using Tourists’ Photographs.

If you've been following my latest attempts to recreate famous monuments through Photogrammetry, using nothing but tourists' photographs finally I have something to show for your patience. Before you get your hopes up, it is still not perfect, but it's a step forward. The idea behind this is that 123D Catch uses photographs to create …

Glastonbury Ware Pot – Ham Hill

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DB4hfNxk1QA&feature=youtu.be This is one of the first attempts I made with Photogrammetry, and probably one of the ones I am most happy with. It is a beautiful pot found during the 2011 excavation, and that was glued together to show how it would have been prior to destruction. I made the model using around 60 …

How Can 3D Printing Help Archaeology?

Before starting this post I’d like to point out that what I am writing here is entirely theoretical, as I haven’t yet had the opportunity to work with a 3D printer and am basing the following discussion entirely on knowledge of 3D modelling and a long series of recent news articles unrelated to archaeology. 3D …
