Archéogrid - Des modèles numériques 3D pour quoi faire?

Abstract : The team of the 3D Technological Platform of the NATIONAL CENTRE FOR SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH investigated the usage of the 3D data for the discipline, either by acquisition of 3D laser scans, or by restoring in 3D, constructions that no longer stand. Files are thus many and varied for example ‘The Castle of Michel de Montaigne’ to ‘The Circus Maximus of Rome, also the factory ‘Renault of the Island Seguin’. Our skills brought us to realize the works of innovative prototypes for the archaeology from 3D digitalizations of sculptures. The success of such a company rests on a rigorous organization, multidisciplinary knowledges and especially full participation of the research specialists of the approached subjects. It is thus completely based to want to preserve not only these 3D files but to keep track of them, but still for the usage that we can make it. All our models thus have to remain technically accessible and if possible available for consultation, because of this we had to set up an appropriate system of dynamic storage. The filing of our data is managed by the interface called ‘ARCHEOGRID’ developed internally. It allows us to leave in connections with the documentary sources on which were based on the hypotheses of restorations and the corresponding volumes. We began the implementation of the database with two objectives. Firstly to keep the copies of the 3D files which are entrusted to us, secondly to make the information accessible to the scientific programs and the actors who created them on the used documentary data. Our intention is to support the preservation of the 3D models and the documentation associated with the progressive implementation of a scientific «label» attached to the production of 3D images in archaeology. An interface of consultation is in the course of validation allowing every Internet user to view the data kept in the database ‘ARCHEOGRID’.
