Photogrammetry is the art, science, and technology of obtaining reliable
information about physical objects and the environment through processes of
recording, measuring and interpreting photographic images and pattern
of recorded radiant electromagnetic energy and other phenomena.

          Shortly, photogrammetry is the science of making measurements from photographs. The word Photogrammetry, comes from:

* Photo = light
* Gram = drawing
* Metry = measurement

          Photogrammetry is a technology that comes in supporting the archaeological research. Given that archaeological excavation is a destructive research method, photogrammetry represents a freezing time of a particular stage during excavation, a three-dimensional perspective, that gives the archaeologist the possibility to review the details during the digging for new observations and interpretations, or even to review those performed in the field.

          Using a simple camera and a computer you can create 3D models of archaeological structures captured during excavations, methodology and costs making photogrammetry technique widely available.

          Within the ArheoVest Association photogrammetry was applied for the first time on the excavation of Unip – Dealu Cetățuica, school site of West University from Timisoara by Claudiu Toma.
