3D laser scanning for archaeological applications
Roman helmet and a 3D computer model
Close range laser scanning enables fragile archaeological finds to be recorded precisely and efficiently in 3D. Laser scanning is non-contact, and has sub-millimetre accuracy and resolution. Conservation Technologies has extensive experience of recording cultural heritage, including many archaeological finds, and of utilising the resulting 3D data for:
documentation and archiving,
education and improved access to artefacts,
3D laser scanning can be carried out on-site or at our studios within the National Conservation Centre. Conservation Technologies also carries out post-processing of 3D data collected by third parties, and can integrate close range 3D data into terrestrial survey data of archaeological sites.
