Project DescriptionThe purpose of the project was to document architectural remains of the excavation of the Northeast Insulae at Hippos-Sussita after the conclusion of fieldwork begun in 2002 and finished in 2016. 181 targetless 360 degree scans were made over a two-week period in 2019 using a Leica BLK360 scanner. 145 of these scans were merged using 381 links first with Autodesk Recap Pro and then with Leica Cyclone Register 360. The final project has a Bundle Error of 0.014m, Overlap of 48% and Strength of 68%. The Leica BLK360 is a high speed time of flight enhanced by Waveform Digitizing (WFD) technology, Laser class 1 (in accordance with IEC 60825-1:2014), Wavelength 830 nm, Field of view 360 degree (horizontal) / 300 degree (vertical), Range* min. 0.6 - up to 60 m.
