Dinosaur footprints

Project researchers

The interdisciplinary project seeks a methodology for the digital surveying and documentation of dinosaur tracks in the Trentino’s alpine areas. Photogrammetry and laser scanning are employed to fulfill all the surveying and geo-paleontological needs and achieve digital 3D models of single footprints or long tracks.
