Data from: Spatial Analysis and Heritage Conservation: Leveraging 3-D Data and GIS for Monitoring Çatalhöyük Earthen Architecture

About this Collection

This collection includes a mixed remote sensing dataset made of terrestrial laser scanning point clouds, point cloud comparison data, structure from motion-generated polygonal meshes, and related textures and metadata. It was recorded at the Neolithic site of Çatalhöyük, Turkey under the Çatalhöyük Digital Preservation Project carried out in 2012-2017 by scholars and students from the University of California Merced and Cardiff University. The historic series of North Area and South Area point clouds were documented by means of a Faro Focus S120 time of flight laser scanning during six consecutive field seasons (2012-2017), while the East Mound and West Mound landscape 3-D models were generated from low-altitude photos captured by an unmanned aerial vehicle (drone) in 2015.
