Course objectives
The aim of the seminar is to make the students familiar with advanced methods of documentation of movable archaeological relics – spatial documentation of artefacts by 3D scanning and spatial photogrammetry, 3D reconstruction of terrain contexts and small artefacts. Practical training also is included. The seminar also addresses theoretical issues: 3D printing, CT and other non-destructive spatial documentation methods. E-learning support of the course: records from lectures, manuals, procedures and tutorials concerning the 3D modelling. Practical teaching is held in small groups in the form of thematic workshops. The main objectives of the course: learning and testing of new methods of 3D documentation and their application in practice. The students will learn to apply the documentation methods and elaborate a final protocol about their work.
Learning outcomes
After completion of the course, student will be able to:
- understand the technical aspects of application of 3D documentation in monument care
- carry out 3D scanning of small artefacts
- make a 3D photogrammetric record of a terrain context
- make a 3D photogrammetric record of a small artefact
- edit data for 3D print
- create the basic 3D reconstruction of a terrain context
- create the basic 3D reconstruction of a small artefact
