The CISA3 and Levantine archaeology labs at the University of California, San Diego were graced by a visit from HRH Prince Mired Al-Hussein of Jordan on May 9, 2013.
His tour covered the full spectrum of University of California, San Diego archaeological work in the ancient Near East, as well as coverage of the visualization facilities at the California Institute of Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2). Amongst the tour, Vid Petrovic gave a synopsis of his point cloud visualization innovations and their contribution to organizing archaeological data from the region. And I presented the results of our laser scanning work in Jordan over the past several seasons, with an emphasis on utilizing rapid data collecting technology to create a record of endangered sites as part of the standard kit of rescue archaeology tactics that ought to be employed in Jordan and everywhere beyond.
