Title
Mud Bricks and Laser Beams: Research into 3D Reality Management for Erosion Monitoring of Earthen Architecture

Abstract
Justin Barton will discuss the research he began here at UQ in October 2015: an investigation into 3D capture technologies, such as laser scanning (terrestrial LiDAR), for better-informed conservation and management of earthen architecture, including long-term erosion monitoring. Justin will discuss 3D capture technologies, his background in applying these technologies to heritage site management and outreach, the current conservation issues at his two research sites of St. Helena Island in Australia and UNESCO World Heritage Site Ancient Merv in Turkmenistan (including previous 3D data capture at both sites), and how 3D reality management technology will be layered in his research for a “4D” perspective of site conditions to better understand change over time.
