3D Data Acquisition for Bioarchaeology, Forensic Anthropology, and Archaeology serves as a handbook for the collection and processing of 3-D scanned data and as a tool for scholars interested in pursuing research projects with 3-D models. The book's chapters enhance the reader's understanding of the technology by covering virtual model processing protocols, alignment methods, actual data acquisition techniques, basic technological protocols, and considerations of variation in research design associated with biological anthropology and archaeology.
- Thoroughly guides the reader through the "how-to on different stages of 3D-data-related research
- Provides statistical analysis options for 3D image data
- Covers protocols, methods and techniques as associated with biological anthropology and archaeology
