Before autumn 2000:
Martin Heller designs a software allowing to
semi-automatically model caves. High-tech approaches such
as Laser surveying and video-stereometry will be applied
to produce 3D representations on a computer directly on
survey of the upper Bungalon river; prospection of the
5 caves our guides told us about; field use of the 3D
modeling method; first investigation by the
Collective definition of the research program for
Work in France on data processing and mapping, as well
as computer reconstruction of the photographs of the 6
most important decorated caves.
Visit of the principal prehistoric sites in Australia
and/or Papua, to study analogies with the paintings of
Borneo. Photographic recordings and 3D models will be
used for comparison.
Main interdisciplinary mission. Two months in the
field, with the full team: speleologists, archaeologists,
karstologists and a biologist. Transport by means of
helicopters, inflatable boats and four-wheel drives.
At the end of 2001:
Publication of the first report about the missions,
summarizing the discoveries carried out in the caves of
Borneo since 1988.
Publication of a book for a general audience, a CD-ROM
and documentary films.
During all the project, news would be set on line at
this web site.
