The article presents the results of studies of petroglyphs from the southeastern Altai in 2017. The tasks of documenting the monuments of rock art, which occur there on a large territory, were solved using modern information and geoinformation technologies and methods of visualization and three-dimensional modeling of rock surfaces with drawings. Mapping of the petroglyphs of the Chagan Valley and the construction of the three-dimensional models of the terrain were continued. A quadcopter was used for aerial survey. As a result of the works, over 200 objects with photographs were entered into the closed information system; a mobile application was also used for that purpose. A three-dimensional modeling of a large rock outcrop with the concentrated cluster of petroglyphs of the Bronze Age was carried out.
