During the past decade, photogrammetry rapidly evolved from a sophistcated skill practsed by a small group of devoted experts with appropriate equipment and special sofware, to a broadly available tool, which can be managed by anybody, with no restrictons regarding educatonal level, professional background, or virtual modelling experience.
Photogrammetry is now a common, indispensable tool, which, in skillful hands, can produce excellent results within the working process for which it is designed. Although technological upgrades contnue to improve the hardware, sofware and accuracy of photogrammetric recording, the true innovaton lies in avoiding over-reliance on photogrammetry, but instead striving to understand its drawbacks and limitatons. Simply performing photogrammetry as the end goal of an underwater excavaton is not sufcient.
Considering the stated premises, the Internatonal Course Workshop Photogrammetry in Underwater Archaeological Research - Theory and Practce aims at introducing the partcipants to the theory and practce of the photogrammetric photo and video recording, for the needs of underwater archaeological research, taking into consideraton all its advantages and constraints.
The workshop is organized in the framework of the Archaeology of Adriatc Shipbuilding and Seafaring (AdriaS) Project, supported by the Croatan Science Foundaton (IP-09-2014-8211).
