Surphaser was one of the instruments used to collect 3D data in the project “Development of Geographic Information Systems at the Acropolis of Athens” (Moullou & Mavromati, 2007). The goal of the project is the development of GIS with the associated databases for documentation, restoration management, and presentation of the monuments and surrounding walls and landscape, starting with the Erechtheion, which is so far the only fully restored monument on the Acropolis.
