The VISTA (Visual Spatial and Technology Centre) is one of the best-equipped archaeological visualisation laboratories in Europe. Dominated by the main 4.27m by 1.8m dual channel rear projection screen, the facilities enable:
3D laser scanning of objects and artifacts
Geographical information science work
Geophysics techniques (enabling non intrusive exploration of both land and marine sites)
Visualisation (broadly divided into 3D models, reconstruction and animations)
The VISTA team work with commercial partners to ensure their facilities and work remain competitive.
The wide range of facilities available within the VISTA Centre have also enabled researchers to work outside the archaeological visualisation field by collaborating on projects with medical and geographical colleagues on campus.
