Data Collection Trip to 13th Century Crusader fortress in Herzilya-Pituach, Israel 


From July 23, 2007 to August 2, 2007 Dr. Willis visited Herzilya, Israel on a data measurement campaign. The focus of the trip was the front gate and drawbridge to the Crusader fortress at Apollonia-Arsuf. Data collected included conventional digital imagery and a newly developed laser range scanner. Scan images will be made available throught the ShaRP 3D servlet link on the website.

The project is a collaboration between the UNC Charlotte Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Brown University, and Tel-Aviv University. Investigators on this project are examining how new measurement technologies can contribute to solving difficult problems in Anthropology and Archaeology.
