Abstract


The use of techniques employed in fields so indispensable and developed for the earth sciences such as geomatics and surveying, and the application of information & communication technologies (TIC), have transcended the scope of museums to the point that they are now responsible for their democratization.

It is essential and necessary for its proper safeguard. Geometrical documentation, three dimensional (3D) reconstruction and 3D modelling are affective techniques to achieve the key targets for investigation, education, diffusion and preservation of pieces of historical armament.

Both heritage and virtual archaeology are fundamental pillars to delve into the future of education and knowledge.
