Applications: All and Archaeology

The study of archaeological artifacts requires a great care for the object. Current technologies allow the study of the object scanned in three dimensions. Hence, the digitization of objects has almost become compulsory for simplicity of study and analysis. Hence a low cost solution susceptible of being operated with reasonable effort could contribute to popularize 3D acquisition tools. In our study, we focus particularly on two solutions: David Laserscanner and PhotoModeler Scanner. Both systems come from two different techniques: laser scanning and photogrammetry.
