The Royal Museums of Art and History, Brussels
is digitising 450 pots in its collections from the Bronze age civilisation of El Argar in the south East of Spain. The civilisation was discovered by the Siret brothers, Belgian engineers who were also amateur archaeologists. KMKG is creating high resolution 3D models of the collection using 3D photogrammetry.
has digitised the Abbadia Castle, a World Heritage site, in the south west of France for 3D-Icons project. The castle overlooks the Bay of Biscay, near the Spanish, and was built at the end of the nineteen century by Viollet le Duc for Antoine d'Abbadie. The survey was completed using 3D photogrammetry using ground and aerial photographs; more than 200 photographs being captured using a EPC-D601 drone.
The Andalusian Centre for Iberian Archaeology
(University of Jaén) has completed the digitisation of a group of 40 Cerrillo Blanco sculptures from Porcuna that are on display at the Provincial Museum of Jaen. The sculptures date from the Fifth century B.C. and the group includes figures of warriors, ancestors, animals and religious scenes. A 3D laser scanner was used for digitisation.
has completed the 3D digitisation of the Kioutouklou Baba Bekctashic Tekke monument, which is considered as one of the most important Ottoman monuments in the area of Xanthi. The fieldwork was separated into distinct sessions. First the terrestrial and aerial photography of the monument, then terrestrial 3D laser scanning using an Optec Ilris-36D time-of-flight range scanner and finally a number of feature points on the surface of the monument were were measured using a Topcon GPT-3005 N total station. CETI then created a 3D digital replica of the monument's exterior using the images captured and commercial 3D reconstruction software.
