Dynamic Management of Survey data and Archaeological Excavation. The case study of the Amphitheatre of Volterra


The work presented in this article demonstrates how combining different expeditious techniques can better describe the studied subject, in addition to creating a rich database of colorimetric information and metrics. Data that were foundational for the prototypical construction of the VR mobile application were also able to manage the details of the excavation. The discovery of the amphitheatre in Volterra is the case study that was used for this research. This research is divided into three phases: (i) identification of the case study; (ii) analysis and comparison of the survey systems used; (iii) the design and development of a mobile app to manage the information in a virtual environment.
