GeoSCAPEProfesor Hiroshi Ishii and Jay Lee / 2000


GeoSCAPE is a reconstructive tool for capturing measurement data in field archaeology and facilitating a 3-D visualization of an excavation rendered in computer graphics. This project is carried out by extending a recently developed orientation-aware digital measuring tape, called HandSCAPE that has been examined to address the efficiency of bridging measuring and modeling for on-site application areas. GeoSCAPE allows the user to navigate the archaeological excavation site virtually with immediate access to excavation information on-site. The timely and accurate result would verify clear interpretations while the excavator obtains increments of information on-site. This will improve collaboration between on-site and laboratory archaeological research.
