3D Data and Visualization in Archaeology and Cultural Heritage Studies
The course introduces students to the theory and methods 3D modelling in archaeology and cultural heritage management including hands-on teaching of relevant methods especially photogrammetry. We will problematize the use of 3D models including issues such as sustainability, open data, and visualization. On the whole the course is an introduction to the wider field of Digital Archaeology - a rapidly expanding field with a growing scope, literature, and job opportunities. The course is international and will be given in English.
The course introduces students to the theory and methods of creating and using 3D models in archaeology and cultural heritage. The teaching will be hands-on with students creating their own models. The course will acquaint students with techniques like laser scanning, photogrammetry, 3D modelling, etc. that can be used by archaeologists and cultural heritage professionals alike. The skills learned here are transferable, and can be used by individuals in other fields and by those interested in creating 3D data. Furthermore, problems with 3D modelling and how visualization techniques can help to enhance research and outreach will be discussed. Another aspect of the course will be an introduction to the critical use of models. The course will also serve as an introduction to the wider field of Digital Archaeology - a rapidly expanding field with a growing scope, literature, and job opportunities. Since the course focuses on transferable skills, the teaching offers long-term sustainability for the participants.
The course will be open to international students and will be given in English.
