In situ 3D Digitization of the "Little Foot" Australopithecus skeleton from Sterkfontein

Abstract : Here we describe the methodology we used to digitize an excavation site of a very ancient fossil hominid in South Africa, which has been recently dated using cosmogenic techniques. We detail the practical aspects of acquiring 3D views with a laser range scanner and the post-processing computer graphics pipeline required to obtain an accurate 3D representation.
