Tips from CoDA Training #1: Photography and Photogrammetry for Archaeologists

Hi, Nikki here! During today's webinar with photogrammetry expert Adam Prins a common question came up that many of us who attended had. What file format should I use when taking photographs for archaeology?

In the Photogrammetry and Photography in Archaeology webinar, we learned about the importance of shooting in RAW format whenever possible, and converting to JPEG or other file formats later if needed.

Shooting in RAW format is essential for those planning to apply photogrammetric software such as Agisoft photoscan, because shooting RAW allows for more resolution and less noise which helps the software to find matching points with higher accuracy.
