Carnuntum Augmented Reality mobile application

Abstract Bringing the romans remains to life using the latest technology at the site of the former roman capital of Carnuntum, Austria is one of the main goals of the archaeological park carnuntum. In 2018 it was therfore decided to invest into the production of an augmented & immersive reality application for mobile devices, bringing in the gathered and scientifically publicized data sets and spread the knowledge to a wider public.

Abstract A novel approach was used across several Research projects, to document the UNESCO World Heritage site of Asinou Church in Cyprus1 using various modern techniques, such as UAV, photogrammetry and 3D printing. Digital 3D Models created from UAV photographs, were used for a variety of purposes related to tourism, education and HBIM. The approach provides architects, archaeologists, civil engineers and cultural heritage experts an accurate, simple and cost-effective method of documenting cultural heritage sites. Furthermore, the applications subsequently derived signpost the way to multiple uses of 3D models and the importance of a holistic approach to documentation in...

Documenting challenging objects in archaeology

Abstract Working with and documenting waterlogged wooden objects pose a special challenge to archaeologists. Modern structured light 3D scanners support the work of archaeologists and help to analyse and evaluate artefacts in a greater detail. This case study of excellence showcases how waterlogged wooden objects excavated from historic mines in the Ore Mountain region are documented. The Archaeological Heritage Office of Saxony, lead partner in the binational German-Czech research project ArchaeoMontan, has developed a broadly-adaptable approach that foresees 3D scanning each wooden find twice: before and after the freeze-drying treatment. 3D models created from the two scanning processes allow...
