Project description

Archaeologists would greatly benefit from the development of an archaeological 3D geographical information system (GIS). The objective of the proposed research is to create a decision scheme through which a suitable 3D geometric modelling technique for such a system can be determined, taking into account the needs of archaeological research and based on a user-centered, theoretical and empirical pillar.
