Bigger And Better: Photogrammetry Of Buildings

Photogrammetry is definitely the "new" thing in archaeology, slowly clawing its way into how we treat and record archaeological sites. As far as its potentials go though, there is still a lot of research to be done, in order to assess the uses that this technology has, but also the limits that we will have …

Roman Villa Reconstructed In 3D

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_CI5I3UfrE&feature=youtu.be Based on the plan of an actual Roman Villa, this is a fly through of the model. It's a way to explore this living area and get a more authentic feel of what it would have been like to actually live in the Roman times. The model was made using Google Sketchup, and the …

Roman Villa Reconstruction Preview

I have talked endlessly before on this blog about the use of Google Sketchup in the archaeological world, so pardon yet another example on the topic. I recently started recreating a typical Roman Villa using plans from a number of sites and any source of information I could find. The final plan is to not …

Sketchup for Archaeology – Olynthus House

Having talked for the last few days about Sketchup and its uses in Archaeology, I thought I'd complete this line of enquiry by showing you another model I made during my second year and briefly presented before, a house from the Classical Greece site of Olynthus. Much like the houses of Zagora I covered before, …

Sketchup and Archaeology – Iron Age Roundhouse

One of the projects I've been working on has been reconstructing a roundhouse we found at Caerau, Cardiff, using Sketchup to create the main frame, and V-Ray to render it as an image. This will then be used to fade over some footage of the archaeological site, to show a transition between what we can …

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 …

Reconstructing Mount Rushmore from Tourists’ Photographs

One of my first posts here was about the creation of 3D photorealistic models using tourists’ photographs, the main aim of which is the possibility of recreating monuments that were around since the invention of photography and that have since been destroyed or damaged. Also, it is a way of testing the size limits of …
