Abstract: Project developed and field-tested a real-time 3D data-recording interface called ArchField for real time archaeological excavations. Software is streamlined and easily adaptable to all archaeological projects spanning different time periods, contexts, and recording nomenclature. All field data linked with 3D coordinates, auto-generation of daily top plans in real-time. Includes direct communication with Total Stations and/or several GPS units to acquire and store real-world coordinates, automated creation of Structure-from-Motion (SFM) 3D architecture models from DSLR cameras, automated integration of SFM and LIDAR Scans in CalVR, user-friendly GUI interface to rapidly streamline recording of archaeological data in the field; server based storage using PostGIS on PostgreSQL (CouchDB for iOS), real-time recording and conversion of data to multiple output formats and projections, rapid conversion tools for export and import of data into different formats, synchronization across multiple database servers, dynamic labeling and symbolization of daily recorded artifacts/loci, and auto-generation of labels, barcodes, and QRcodes.
