Since a couple of years, several commercial solutions of dense stereo matching have been developed. This process offers a really cheap, flexible and accurate solution to get 3D point clouds and textured models. The calibration of the camera allows a subpixellar correlation for correctly textured objects. In order to define the limits of such a process for cultural heritage applications, the Photomodeler Scanner software has been tested on an archaeological site.
