From 3D to GIS. A comprehensive methodology for recording stratigraphy and its application in the MEMOLA Project

You are here


This paper aims to demonstrate the scope of application of digital 3D photogrammetry in archaeological practice. The excavation of the “Pago del Jarafi” (Lanteira, Granada) carried out during from 2014 to 2017 within the framework of the European project MEMOLA, coordinated by the University of Granada has been taken an example. The development of new software, algorithms and 3D modelling techniques such as Structure from Motion (SfM) has made it easier for archaeologists to access higher quality and more accurate documentation. This paper also aims to demonstrate how this methodology has been included in our usual practice.
