This chapter of the book “A Companion to Rock Art” is one of three in the section called “Rock Art as Digital Heritage: Advances in Photo Enhancement Technology and Digital Archiving”. The authors discuss the use of Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI), Algorithmic Rendering, and Photogrammetry with rock art.
The book as a whole offers a broad overview of a field that has evolved over the last decades with the exploration of petroglyph and pictograph art forms around the world. Leading international scholars provide the most up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of developments in the field, and illustrations and photographs support the text. This new companion will be an authoritative guide for researchers, instructors and students in anthropology, archaeology, religious studies, and prehistoric art.
