Underwater cartography for archaeology in the VENUS project

David Scaradozzi, Dipartimento di Ingegneria Informatica, Gestionale e dell'Automazione (DIIGA) - Università Politecnica delle Marche

This presentation describes on-going developments of the VENUS European Project (Virtual ExploratioN
of Underwater Sites, concerning the first mission to sea in Pianosa Island, Italy in
October 2006. The VENUS project aims at providing scientific methodologies and technological tools for the
virtual exploration of deep underwater archaeological sites. The VENUS project will improve the accessibility of
underwater sites by generating thorough and exhaustive 3D records for virtual exploration. In this paper we
focus on the underwater photogrammetric approach used to survey the archaeological site of Pianosa. After a
brief presentation of the archaeological context we shall see the calibration process in such a context. The next
part of this paper is dedicated to the survey: it is divided into two parts: a DTM of the site (combining acoustic
bathymetry and photogrammetry) and a specific artefact plotting dedicated to the amphorae present on the site.
