This chapter presents a draft of a long-standing interdisciplinary project involving photogrammetry and archaeology, in which both sides tried to eliminate the gap between their disciplines. This is the Applikensigillata project which aimed to determine appliqué decorations in Italian terra sigillata. The cooperation of the different disciplines resulted in a substantial extension of the timetable. Although the project was relatively time consuming, it nevertheless provided results that were instrumental to archaeology. The project Italian terra sigillata of Noricum produced archaeological results. It produced correct drawings of the appliqué decorations through photogrammetry; it yielded a general catalogue; it opened a new field of results reflecting quality in both shapes and decorations; it debunked the old-myth of the carter-like organisation of Roman; and it eliminated surviving old catalogues based on the observation of a single piece.
