SIS: Archaeological research

The 3D dot clouds of the laser scans were rendered. The dot clouds were thus converted into parametric CAD models. Next, a virtual reconstruction was made of the colossal statues. The resulting 3D CAD models were ready to be merged with the GPS mapping.

The heads at the East-Terrace could be studied in detail thanks to the hoisting operation.

A detailed study of the East-Terrace statues revealed assembling marks on the blocks of the Antiochos, Zeus, Apollo and Herakles statues.

The SIS database was further developed. The reliefs at all the terraces were studied, including the blocks scattered over the area. New artefacts were added to the database. The blocklist was prepared for integration into the GPS mapping.
