Chapter: 24. How can 3D imaging help?

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.27873


3-D imaging is used for data recording, data interpretation and the presentation of data and results. Technologies such as structure-from-motion and LiDAR are used to record point clouds. Computer visualizations can assist in detecting patterns. They also are useful tools to disseminate the results of archaeological investigation and assist in recreating aspects of the past.
