Sustainable Documentation in Archaeology

Technological Perspectives in Excavation an Processing

Besides the restoration of archaeological objects, the documentation of their excavation and the recording of all accessible information is a crucial aspect of every-day life in archaeology. This documentation work includes descriptions, written text, drawings, photography, and since some years also digital photography, GIS data, on-site laser scanning of structures and many ore. These data are the starting point of data processing, modelling, and virtual reconstruction work. Digital data acquisition has evolved rapidly within the last years and large amounts of data have been collected. As nearly every archaeological institute has its own way of collecting and storing data, due to the different equipment and workflows they use, it is extremely difficult to exchange raw data between different institutions for further processing. The rapid evolution of data and file standards and their non-uniformity also complicates the situation.

In May 2013 a conference was organized by the Römisch-Germanisches Zentralmuseum, the Shaanxi Provincial Institute of Archaeology and the i3mainz, Institute for Spatial Information and Surveying technology in Xi’an to address this topic. Aim of the conference was to offer a possibility to present and discuss different ways of documentation, introduce new documentation techniques and offer a platform for methodological exchange. This contribution contains extended abstracts of about a third of all referees and gives a good overview on the wide range of talks that were held.
