VALLE DEI RE - LUXOR

In October 2018, a team of geomatics and geophysics researchers coordinated by the Polytechnic University of Turin worked side by side in the Valley of the Kings (Luxor, Egypt). Topographic measurements in support of geophysical surveys and the achievement of a very large-scale 3D map of the Eastern VOK were the two main objectives of the geomatics campaign. Innovative 3D metric technologies and methods, based on terrestrial laser scanning (both static and mobile) and close-range photogrammetry were employed by the Geomatics team. This strategy enables the fruition development of the already discovered archaeological heritage, using modern criteria of valorization and conservation.
