Brief description Heritage recording documents archaeological sites for the benefit of future research and also to assess site degradation. This project combines the latest laser scanning technology, available through the ARC-funded LASCAN consortium, with satellite-based and digital photogrammetric survey techniques to develop a unique methodology for precise 3D recording of such sites. Records of archaeological test sites in Greece will contain unprecedented detail, comprising point clouds of greater than five million individual measurements, and spectral information in the infrared and visible wavebands. The large volume of data collected will be managed in a specially designed spatial database, accessible to the general public.
