Centro Ricerche Archeologiche e Scavi di Torino (CRAST)

Research collaboration with the “Centro Ricerche Archeologiche e Scavi di Torino” (CRAST) in the framework of the studies on the heritage and the ancient landscape in connection to the archaeological missions in Near Eastern and Central Asia directed by CRAST (actually the on-going missions are located in Iraq, Turkmenistan, Iran, Mongolia). The Laboratory contributes by providing topographical support and carrying out 3D metric surveys (based on laser scanning and photogrammetric techniques) with the aim to document the archaeological excavations using innovative and sustainable methods. In addition, the Lab provides 3D metric survey products (orthoimagery, DSM, DTM, texturized models, etc.) and manages GIS projects in order to represent the data connected to the excavations and to carry out archaeological analyses. Finally, it takes part to communication projects and contributes to scientific exhibitions through the production of high resolution digital models.
