Registering some 180 scans into a single model is a challenging project. I am using a combination of Autodesk Recap Pro and Leica Cyclone Register 360. I am rather pleased with the results so far. At this point most of my effort goes into learning how the software works and overcoming some corruption of scans. So, these first clouds are practice.
The black spots are gaps that are addressed in scans not yet registered and the tolerances are not yet where I want them. But I am confident in a rich end product.

During the 2019 study season at Sussita, I used a BLK360 to scan the Northeast Insula Project. Over the four weeks of the season, I made 181 scans. During this semester, a lighter teaching load is giving me some time to work on the point cloud by merging the scans together. This view of the Northeast Church is a product of 53 scans. The detail is quite interesting. But I have much more registration to do before finishing the project. The progress to date is hopeful.

Although I am posting this notice a bit after the fact, I am so thankful to Dr. Michael Dorner and (now Vicar) Rob Schrader for their help this season. We accomplished the tasks planned:
* a thorough cleaning of the site
* digital and photogrammatic documentation
* probes in two streets
We even finished a day early and were able to help Jess’s team with the cleaning and covering of the “Burnt Church.” For more about the discoveries there, see this link.
