So yesterday, Brandon Olson and I, drove to Athienou. The goal of the trip was for Brandon to show Jody Gordon and some of the Athienou Archaeological Project how he uses Agisoft Photoscan. Agisoft Photoscan is a software program that allows you to create a multiview 3D reconstruction of a site or an object. It is a nifty program and Brandon and Bill have gotten good at using it. Since we needed to drop off a rental car in Larnaka, I went along with Brandon and brought the LaserScan C10 to test it out. The scanning went well, even though you could feel the difference in heat between Athienou and Polis – or at least I could. After scanning part of their current excavation, we took the scanner down into a tomb and tried it there. It was fun to watch because the green laser beam showed up really well as it worked its way around the tomb.
