CREATION OF A 3D REFERENCE MODEL OF AN ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE FROM A LARGE SET OF GROUND AND UAV IMAGES

Abstract. The archaeological site of the monastery of Saint Hilarion, in the Gaza Strip, concentrates important social and scientific issues. Its geopolitical context puts into tension the importance of setting up a pilot project for archaeological site management and the possibility of offering stable working conditions to many people. The impossibility for us to access the site requires us to delegate the acquisition work and leads to an increase in the complexity of data processing, while maintaining a requirement for the quality of photogrammetry products for archaeology. A large site implies a large amount of data to manage, delegated acquisition increases the volume even more and the impossibility of controlling the support points imposes the control of the data set based on the orientation results. These constraints imply important computational phases influencing the processing method.
