In Archeofoss 2020, Michele Pellegrino and Donato Coppola presented their analysis on Prehistoric engravings and graffiti, like proper artistic events, which are fundamental to understand characters of the graphemic-symbolic system shared by groups of hunter-gatherers of paleo-mesolithic culture (see the abstract in https://zenodo.org/record/4002961#.YHgzlOgzaUk).
In Archeofoss 2020, Lorenzo Fornaciari, Emanuele Brienza, Giovanni Caratelli, Cecilia Giorgi presented a study on the ancient architecture in area of the north-east Palatine hill slopes, in front of the Colosseum valley (abstract available in https://zenodo.org/record/4002961#.YHgzlOgzaUk)
Anchorage/Miesbach in May 2021 – The software producer DAT/EM Systems International of Anchorage (USA) and the 3D hardware specialist Schneider Digital from Miesbach (Germany), have announced a global partnership agreement for the distribution of the latest 3D stereoscopic vision technology from Schneider Digital to all DAT/EM customers around the globe.
Archeofoss 2020 presented a new strategy to avoid using specific innovative technologies / methodologies / software just for fashion and instead pushing responsible thinking depending on the resources spent and data produced. This is the philosophy of Filippo Diara and Fulvio Rinaudo in their work on the use of BIM methodology in Cultural Heritage (abstract available in https://zenodo.org/record/4002961#.YHgzlOgzaUk).
IDS GeoRadar, part of Hexagon, today announces that it has enhanced IQMaps, its post-processing software application for advanced GPR data analysis. The updated version includes new functionalities that improve the visualisation of radar data and extend the application fields to void detection and archaeology.
In Archeofoss 2020, Domizia D’Erasmo and Renata Ago presented a description of a methodology capable of analysing urban mobility in 18th century Rome, a period of great change, using opensource GIS platform (abstract in https://zenodo.org/record/4002961#.YHgzlOgzaUk).
In Archeofoss 2020, Gabriele Ciccone showed how to use open source tools to elaborate thermal images and create archaeological 3S surveys and orthophotos (abstract in https://zenodo.org/record/4002961#.YHgzlOgzaUk), as part of his Phd project “Flying off-site: nuove metodologie di indagine per l’analisi dei paesaggi storici”.
In Archeofoss 2020, Filippo Brandolini and Francesco Carrer presented a new FLOS-based interdisciplinary approach to see the transition from Roman into the Medieval Period (abstract in https://zenodo.org/record/4002961#.YHgzlOgzaUk). This article shows how using QGIS, GRASS GIS and R is allowed the development of a solid statistical assessment of human interaction with alluvial environments and archaeological landscape.
In Archeofoss 2020, F. Battistin, S. De Angeli, F. V. Moresi, P. K. Fayad and M. Serpetti presented an article on RESEARCH -the European project on REmote SEnsing techniques for ARCHaeology- (abstract available at: https://zenodo.org/record/4002961#.YHgzlOgzaUk). This project aims to assess the damage caused by soil erosion to the CH, in exposed and buried archaeological areas. For this purpose a specific FLOS tool was developed, to create high resolution risk maps.
Inside the project STABLE (co-funded by the European Commission, carried out in the context of the HORIZON 2020 program supervised by EU Authority - Grant Agreement No: 823966), the consortium members are working on the structural stability risk assessment of the cultural heritage.
