3D laser scanning is a fresh approach on describing archaeological, architectural and historical art objects. AS – Archäologie Service has used and refined this procedure for several years to survey and illustrate diverse artefacts. Working with a high degree of precision this method is able to preserve the accurate structure of surfaces. Further evaluation leads to exact virtual models in three-dimensional space. This true-to-surface model is highly recommended for object description, virtual documentation and digital archiving. It is a big step towards holistic documentation.The collected data is a first-class base to expose and to publish artefacts or even for reconstruction. AS – Archäologie Service offers affordable access to a 3D laser scanning facility and provides adaptable post processing for all purposes.
