DotProduct technology enables archaeologists and heritage professionals to capture sites before they are lost
3D is changing the way archaeology is conducted, and with DotProduct handheld 3D scanning kits it has never been easier to obtain accurate and rapid 3D data in full color. Our handheld scanning technology is enabling archaeologists and other cultural heritage professionals to capture sites, structures, and artifacts in situ, preserving them digitally in a matter of minutes.
As more sites are lost to environmental change or acts of aggression, the value of reliable 3D data is being increasingly recognized by the archaeological community as not just a luxury, but a requirement. Funding for heritage documentation projects can often be scarce. DotProduct delivers cost-effective tools for non-profit and research organizations.
Preserve historical spaces in stunning color 3D
Many remarkable historical sites have come and gone from this earth with no imprint other than written word, drawings, and maybe photography. Today, with advancements in reality computing technology, we are able to fully document historical sites with accurate color 3D modeling. DotProduct puts this technology in the palm of your hands. From at-risk archaeological sites in the western Canadian Arctic to aging medieval bridges in England, DotProduct technology is already hard at work today, digitally preserving the world as we know it.
Document structural and cosmetic integrity over time
As a structure ages, history leaves is mark. With 3D documentation, we can not only digitally preserve the appearance at different stages of its life, but we can also analyze changes in structural integrity and take action to improve preservation practices. Specifically for bridge and arch work, 3D mapping with DotProduct has revealed pressure points and structural inconsistencies that occur over time. This 3D deliverable is far more useful to the off-site team than anything they could have gotten from a photo or drawing.
