Abstract Underwater archaeology has to depend on reliable and precise readings with limitations of access sometimes requiring an analysis and data interpretation on the site. In order to create optimal study conditions, the production of a virtual facsimile was planned. As part of the VENUS (Virtual ExploratioN of Underwater Sites) project, a procedure combining photogrammetry and ontological definition of artifacts was elaborated. These objects, essentially amphorae, are numerically modelled and viewed from photogrammetric measures taken on the site. 2D and 3D reconstructions are then obtained in standard GIS format.
