As the slides are in Italian I summarize here the experiment we did in that occasion. We divided archaeological finds in four classes, looking which kind of documentation normally they need.
1) photographic documentation (e.g coins)
2) simple drawing (e.g. flint)
3) drawing + shading (e.g. normal artefacts)
4) drawing + shading + section (e.g. pottery)
Then we developed a five steps techniques to get the appropriate documentation for each class in a automatic or semi-automatic way (using only FLOSS, of course):
- rectified photo (GRASS - efoto)
- rectified photo + vector drawing (GRASS - efoto -OpenJUMP)
- rectified photo + vector drawing + shading (GRASS - efoto -OpenJUMP - stippler - Inkscape)
- rectified photo + vector drawing + shading + section (GRASS - efoto -OpenJUMP - stippler - Inkscape - hardware)
Here is an image with the original picture of the archaeological finds we used as test and the final layout.

In 2010 we wrote an article (in Italian) about this technique:
"Proposta per un metodo informatizzato di disegno archeologico" (here in ResearchGate and here in Academia).
