Archaeology and universal design

The photo is of the remains of the Roman Theatre. This is a stone semicircular ampitheatre that has been uncovered by archaeologists. An interesting mix of universal design, laser technology and tourism are in this article about universal design and an archaeological site. The authors claim that using laser technology across the site enables them to find the best routes for visitors. The subject of the study is Tusculum Archaeological-Cultural Park near Rome. This culturally significant site is both a tourist destination and a venue for performances of classic works. The paper looks as if it has been translated from Italian and the language is difficult in places, but for people interested in laser technology, surveying, 3D imaging, and heritage sites this paper should be interesting. The photos and drawings add to the paper.

The title of the paper is, Infographic modeling based on 3D laser surveying for informed universal design in archaeological areas: The case of Oppidum of the ancient city of Tusculum.
