The advent of image and laser based systems have increased the profile of photometric and geometric (colour, texture, shape and size) data capture, particularly in the 21st century. Whilst the application of techniques like laser scanning and photogrammetry to cultural heritage are well documented, their relationship to each other and how they may be used holistically to answer questions within archaeology is not. In my presentation I explore the consequences of going digital with well established and developing technologies, how they are interconnected to one another and how they may be combined or understood in a way that provides a best fit solution to the artefacts and sites that they are applied to.
