Stratigraphic Photogrammetry: Part 2 – A Quick Proof of Concept

I’ve been moving along, making progress on my methodology for stratigraphic photogrammetry. I don’t remember just off of the top of my head, but I think that the actual title of the paper is something like A Method for the Use of a Non-Metric Digital Camera in Stratigraphic Photogrammetry. I present the paper (which I will post […]

Stratigraphic Photogrammetry: Part 1 – Calculations for Photometrics on the Olympus C-750

For the last few months, I have been working on a methodology for using terrestrial photogrammetry techniques in capturing stratigraphic profiles. The original idea for this came on the Wenas Mammoth dig (which I wrote about on 10 August 2005), when we were not sure, at one point, if our trench, cut into a wall […]
