3D Archaeology

Project name: Digitization of the Sun Pool.
Site name: 10th Century Ancient Reservoir.
Location: On the border of New-Delhi and Faridabad (@28.4839339,77.2823382,321). On the Suraj Kund Road.
Site Size: 160 m x 200 m

Steps in 3D archaeology:

1. Make photos as many possible (1000).
2. Convert photos into 3D model in 3DF Zephyr; Autodesk 123D Catch; Visual SFM; Colmap; Agisoft Photoscan or in similar software.
3. Export the 3D model in .odj; .pdf & .stl format for further use.
4. Import .obj in GLC Player -> Tools/Mulishoots -> Generate .gif files to make animations, which can be shared later.
5. Use online tools to create animated .gif files, for example:
https://imgflip.com/gif-maker (this can share the link on Twitter as well).
http://gifmaker.me/
6. Share animated gif on the net (twitter, facebook etc.).
7. The .stl file can be 3D printed (prototype, souvenir etc.)

A) Following the above steps, first a big stone block digitized from the reservoir:
