When I started this archaeological project in 2002, the standard tool for creating galleries was Flash. 2020 is the end of Flash. So one of my projects this year is to use Lightroom to remake all the galleries on this site. Should be fun. Until that is done, I will be taking down the galleries.

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.
