Paper Abstract

In the field of Maya research archaeological studies in architecture play an important part. In the case of Santa Rosa - XTAMPAK the influences of different cultural regions have to be traced. Structures like this situated in border areas, especially require exact surveying so that signficant archaeological assertions can be derived. For the main palace of this site a threedimensional digital architectural model was established, using geodetic-photogrammetric methods. Possibilities of visualization with the help of recently developed technology are shown by examples: certain details of the palace as well as an inner staircase have been digitally recorded. This certainly means considerable help for further study.
