This open access peer-reviewed volume was inspired by the UNESCO UNITWIN Network for Underwater Archaeology International Workshop held at Flinders University, Adelaide, Australia in November 2016. Content is based on, but not limited to, the work presented at the workshop which was dedicated to 3D recording and interpretation for maritime archaeology. The volume consists of contributions from leading international experts as well as up-and-coming early career researchers from around the globe.
The content of the book includes recording and analysis of maritime archaeology through emerging technologies, including both practical and theoretical contributions. Topics include photogrammetric recording, laser scanning, marine geophysical 3D survey techniques, virtual reality, 3D modelling and reconstruction, data integration and Geographic Information Systems.
The principal incentive for this publication is the ongoing rapid shift in the methodologies of maritime archaeology within recent years and a marked increase in the use of 3D and digital approaches. This convergence of digital technologies such as underwater photography and photogrammetry, 3D sonar, 3D virtual reality, and 3D printing has highlighted a pressing need for these new methodologies to be considered together, both in terms of defining the state-of-the-art and for consideration of future directions.
As a scholarly publication, the audience for the book includes students and researchers, as well as professionals working in various aspects of archaeology, heritage management, education, museums, and public policy. It will be of special interest to those working in the field of coastal cultural resource management and underwater archaeology but will also be of broader interest to anyone interested in archaeology and to those in other disciplines who are now engaging with 3D recording and visualization.

What if your fridge could tell when you were running low on milk?
Imagine all our devices and appliances interconnected and talking to one another?
It's no longer science fiction. The internet of things (or IoT) is with us and it's only going to become a bigger part of our lives as we progress deeper into the 21st century and beyond. Building our own digital devices is no longer a dream. The existence of open-source electronics platforms such as Arduino, Raspberry Pi, LaunchPad, Intel Galileo, Intel Edison, and Samsung ARTIK is speeding up the revolution.
Now, with The Future and IoT: Building the Internet of Things, you can step-by-step learn more about these incredible innovations and see how IoT is going to change your life, with chapters including:
- What is internet of things
- Understand IoT fundamentals
- The business surrounding it
- The key features of IoT devices and how they operate
- Getting started with Arduino projects
