Part 3 – Sources and Paradata

What is the first step in 3D reconstruction? Sources! How do we make sure the sources are precise and how can we assure people understand the accuracy of the final results? A look on metadata and paradata.

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 …

New Things I’ve Learnt for Google Sketchup

If you read my blog yesterday I posted an article about creating a virtual museum using 123D Catch and Google Sketchup Pro. Apart from the large scale project, this has also given me a chance to play around more with these programs, and especially with Sketchup. As a result I've learnt a few more skills …

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 …
