Imagerie numérique et représentation des données en archéologie

Abstract : Since the Renaissance, the way archaeological remains have been represented has been based first of all on the draftsman’s talents, later enriched according to scientific and technical progress. This is still true today. The way data is captured and the way digital images are produced have an equally visible impact on archaeological images. But our investigative tools can today render visible what was not visible before, and the representation of newness requires creativity. Our software can offer graphical renderings which are completely new or were difficult to produce in the past, so we try them out. But this tremendous potential for renewal and evolution that digital imaging offers must provide appropriate graphic renderings. Is this a question of a lack of knowledge about the rules of representation and the techniques used, or is it a beneficial progress for science? Some elements hitherto inseparable from scientific representation are disappearing today because they are now considered useless or redundant. But can we imagine the consequences of these losses in the long term? Through the experience of the work carried by the INRAP, France’s national institution for preventive archaeologicy, we will try here to identify the emerging uses of digital imaging, and the way the representations of archaeological data are changing.
