    Recording Prehistoric Rock-art: A Three Dimensional Approach

    Paul Bryan


    The Northumberland and Durham Rock Art Project (NADRAP), a three year English Heritage funded project formally completed in July 2008, set out to pilot a methodology for creating an index of around 1,500 known rock art panels located across two counties of the north-east of England. Principally using around 60 volunteers recruited from the local community, this would provide a georeferenced dataset which included both drawn and photographic records of the motifs represented. It also sought to test, compare and make recommendations against a number of different rock-art recording techniques, including both laser and image based approaches. The latter used a new, lower-cost recording approach based on using 'off-the-shelf' digital cameras, stereo-photography and new photogrammetric processing software by Topcon - PI-3000.
