Day 7: Scanning continues

As I do more scanning — 108 scans so far — I marvel at the capability of the hardware while struggling with the challenges of the site. Heat continues to be a problem. If I scan in the early part of the day, I have harsh sun angles. If I scan later in the day, the heat can shut me down (the iPad actually) in about an half hour. I also wish I had worked more with the scanner in advance. To be effective in archaeology, the device needs an extendable pole for the tripod. These are just a few of the thing the field is teaching me.

Enjoy today’s scan of the structures southwest of the church…
