The archaeologists from the Mentor Shipwreck Excavation Programme team plan on using laser scanning in the following ways (verbatim):

  1. in the study of the ship’s hull and rigging
  2. in the study of the site formation processes
  3. in the study of the ship’s cargo distribution
  4. in the study of the ecological impact of the wreck site
  5. in the study of potential cultural technology & communication endeavors (there is already a VR serious game app that is being developed
  6. in the study of scientific diving procedures (i.e., the use of robotic devices along with divers)

Underwater archaeology has evolved considerably over its short history with its beginnings in the mid-twentieth century.  Initially, tape measures, depth gauges, and hand sketching were used for surveying a site.
