procedure has considerable potential in archaeology, as well as
obviously in architectural history and many other fields.
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.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
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.
