CAA 2012 Southampton

Computer applications and quantitative methods in Archaeology (CAA) 2012

CAA 2012 Southampton

CAA 2012 Southampton

The 2012 conference in rapidly approaching and next year, unlike the past few years, it is being held close to home, for me at least; hosted by the Archaeological Computing Research Group at the University of Southampton.

Geoff Avern and I are running a session looking at 3D archaeology and since the call for papers has been extended, there is still time to get a paper in should you wish to via the online submissions system. Continue reading

Interactive Landscape Relighting

There’s a short article in the Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry Society’s Archaeology Special Interest Group Spring 2011 Newsletter looking briefly at how archaeologists can investigate landscapes using digital techniques, co-authored by Tom Goskar and myself. Using Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI) techniques it is possible to look in detail at surface morphology of Digital Surface Models (DSMs) by creating Polynomial Texture Maps (PTMs) representing parts of or even entire landscapes which can then be dynamically relit, a process Tom has named Interactive Landscape Relighting.

Heritage in 3D

Following on from my last post, I’ve posted my presentation given at this years CAA UK conference to Slideshare. The subject was the use of terrestrial and airborne laser scanning in heritage contexts and made use of a number of case studies from work, which will shortly be published on the Wessex Archaeology computing blog in more detail.
