Subject: New Discussion List: VIsualisation STandards in Archaeology
Introducing VISTA: VIsualisation STandards in Archaeology
(Apologies for Cross Posting!)
This new mailbase discussion list is devoted to three dimensional visualisation, reconstruction and presentation standards in Archaeology and the Humanities.
As digital technology advances, landscape, monument, and artefact reconstruction and visualisation techniques allow for more and more sophisticated forms of representation. Unlike other types of reconstruction, (for example, pottery, fresco or even drawing) there are no agreed strategies for immediately allowing the viewer to discern what parts of a digital representation are founded on metric data, how reliable or complete that data is, and which parts of a presentation are speculative. The object of this list is to allow academics, researchers, and other interested parties to discuss the feasibility, suitability, and nature of any form of standards or conventions.
