Laser scanning is a tool that is increasingly being used in archaeology. While experiments often focus on its use as an instrument for surveying remains of large archaeological sites and ruins, it can also be used in the process of documenting and recording excavations. 3D registering of archaeological stratification is a challenging goal that requires a unique environment for a global set of documentation objects, including old style drawn overlays and plans. What a laser scanner cannot do is survey things that do not exist any more. Our main concern was to merge digital born data from the laser scanner with traditional data that have to be implemented using different technologies and solutions.

Abstract

Laser scanning is a tool that is increasingly being used in archaeology. While experiments often focus on its use as an instrument for surveying remains of large archaeological sites and ruins, it can also be used in the process of documenting and recording excavations. 3D registering of archaeological stratification is a challenging goal that requires a unique environment for a global set of documentation objects, including old style drawn overlays and plans. What a laser scanner cannot do is survey things that do not exist any more. Our main concern was to merge digital born data from the laser scanner with traditional data that have to be implemented using different technologies and solutions.
