This procedure has considerable potential in archaeology, as well as obviously in architectural history and many other fields.

American archaeologists, however, rarely get into the technical aspects of surveying. Architecture tends to be secondary to artifacts; rim sherds are the most beloved artifacts of all.

Since my background is in architecture I have been an atypical archaeologist from the beginning. In Europe, photogrammetric technology is highly advanced. Rollei is a leader in this field and Linhof has recently entered the market with a sophisticated photogrammetric system.

The Better Light adaptation of the Dicomed large format digital camera has even more potential for photogrammetric drawing because the position of every pixel is known from its x and y coordinates. The software can calculate these coordinated with precision. Michael Collette is keenly interested in having his digital camera systems adapted to photogrammetric work, so people who are advanced in this field should contact him at

Most current photogrammetric systems are based on (old fashioned) film, and medium format (120, 220). The Better Light Dicomed is close to 4x5 inch format, considerably superior to 120 size film.
