Archaeological Modeling at the scale of the landscape, site or artifact

(Archaeologysouthwest) #1

3D modeling and interpretation services provided for specific archaeological projects and museum applications.

We offer legal aerial photogrammetry, And high resolution modeling at the scale of the landscape, artifact, or village. and we utilize custom game engine tools to interpret this data through web-GL based reconstructions and guided tours.

With over 25 years experience in 3dsMax, Autocad, Arc-info, and a PHD in Anthropology with experience over 20 summer field excavation seasons, we have much more to offer your research or public interpretive endeavors than simplistic digitization by armchair photogrammetrists.

References available on request, past clients have included the National Park Service, Arizona State Parks, The Arizona State Museum and the Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia.
