Greece: Eleusis 3D Archaeological Recording and Visualization Project
This field school will introduce students to a broad range of 3D recording, mapping, animation and visualization methods. Students will be given hands-on instruction in these methods in the context of the major Greek archaeological site of Eleusis. Eleusis is world famous as the location of the Eleusinian Mysteries – a significant Athenian religious festival - and is located some 14 miles west of Athens opposite the island of Salamis. The students will record the site’s extensive architectural remains using terrestrial laser scanning, photogrammetry , GIS and GPS. 3D computer visualization and animation technologies will be used to re-create areas of the site.
