Argentina – Discussing photogrammetry applied to archeology and cultural heritage

“Modern photogrammetry for archeological documentation and the cultural property” is the theme of a seminar to take place in Buenos Aires on 24-27 October, at the Italian Cultural Institute. The initiative is organised by the Italian Embassy in the capital of Argentina and by the “A Raimondi ” archeological mission, Museo delle Culture (Milan). Professor Francesco Mancini and Dr. Carolina Orsini will deliver the lectures, and the focus of the seminar will be a survey based on 3D reconstruction applied to archeology. The new approach consists in carrying out an expeditious survey based on acquisitions of the Earth’s images to be applied to archeology. The basic principles of traditional photogrammetry are being used, but the new methods, based on IT vision algorithms, will also be discussed. The new methods will be compared with the traditional approach, thus highlighting the major differences and reflecting the diverse requirements of operational surveys that must be taken into account when data collection and research are being carried out. The description will also include data processing with a focus on alternative products, which may be obtained by enhancing the 3D function of the method. The main goal is to provide know-how on modern photogrammetry, enabling archeology students and professionals to commit to cultural property protection and to work at it using the most advanced technologies. The seminar will be organised in two sections: the first one will provide theoretical information, while the second one will be based on practical exercises on data collection and processing.
