A computer-guided 3D multiscale reconstruction of the Kromdraai site

Abstract : A large range of methods is increasingly used for heritage purposes, particularly in archaeology. Several techniques can be employed, depending on the complexity in size, shape and level of detail of objects (Pavlidis et al. 2007). Long-range scanners are used to record buildings (Allen et al. 2004; Craciun et al. 2012) or archaeological excavations (Doneus & Neubauer 2005; Rüther et al. 2009; Subsol et al. 2015). Long-range scanning methods may be associated with photogrammetry (Lambers et al. 2007; Yastikli 2007; Rüther et al. 2012). Digitisation is often used to document the cultural heritage, in particular to generate and visualise 3D reconstructions and to record the 3D geometry of archaeological materials (Kuzminsky & Gardiner 2012) and individual items.
