Integrated methodologies for the study, enhancement and sharing of archaeological heritage: the ArcheoFano project


The fear that knowledge regarding the archaeological remains of the historic centre of Fano could be lost led to an agreement between the authorities concerned, with the goal of providing the city with a modern archaeological map, to create a uniform data base to use as a starting point for a final analysis of the urban context of the ancient Fanum Fortunae. Starting with the bare bibliographic and archival material, supporting topographical investigations were carried out via total stations systems and GNSS of known archaeological sites, and laser scanner point clouds were subsequently taken from a few roughly known sample areas. Some areas were pinpointed, gravitating around the apparent forum area, and ground penetrating radar surveys were carried out in order to detect underground structures attributable to Roman era remains. All captured material was placed inside an Open Source GIS platform.
