  • Schär, Sonja; Bieri, Hanspeter; Jiang, Xiaoyi (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    Medieval Burgundian tapestries belong to the most valuable treasures of historical museums, in particular of the Bern Historical Museum. Many of them are well preserved, but much of their color is highly faded. Thus their ...
  • Sagiroglu, M. S.; Erçil, A. (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    Reconstruction of archaeological finds from fragments, is a tedious task requiring many hours of work from the archaeologists and restoration personnel. In this paper we present a framework for the full reconstruction of ...
  • Alzua-Sorzabal, A.; Linaza, M. T.; Abad, M.; Arretxea, L.; Susperregui, A. (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    Intuitive access to information in real environments is a challenge for Information Society Technologies. Having this in mind, a new device for Mixed Reality applications called Virtual Showcase has been developed. It has ...
  • Owen, Ruth; Buhalis, Dimitrios; Pletinckx, Daniël (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    Technology that serves to enhance the visitors experience is gradually becoming more commonplace at Cultural Heritage (CH) sites. However ICT is not usually the CH professional s area of expertise and they have to make ...
  • Malerczyk, C.; Dähne, P.; Schnaider, M. (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    This paper describes a Mixed Reality-supported interaction system to explore digitized artworks like twodimensional paintings and three-dimensional sculptures. Using an easy and intuitive pointing gesture recognition system, ...
  • Zuk, T.; Carpendale, S.; Glanzman, W. D. (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    Uncertainty in various forms is prevalent throughout Archaeology. With archaeological site data in particular, the dating regularly has significant uncertainty. In this paper we present an application that enables integrating ...
  • Chalmers, A.; Debattista, K. (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    The prehistoric temples found on the Maltese islands, dated from 3600 - 2500 BC, are unique examples of truly megalithic complexes. Although the temples can still be viewed today, they are unroofed. One of the major questions ...
  • Sundstedt, Veronica; Gutierrez, Diego; Gomez, Fermin; Chalmers, Alan (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    Computer graphics, and in particular high-fidelity rendering, make it possible to recreate cultural heritage on a computer, including a precise lighting simulation. Achieving maximum accuracy is of the highest importance ...
  • Ciechomski, Pablo de Heras; Schertenleib, Sébastien; Maïm, Jonathan; Maupu, Damien; Thalmann, Daniel (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    We present a method of fully dynamically rendered virtual humans with variety in color, animation and appearance. This is achieved by using vertex and fragment shaders programmed in the OpenGL shading language (GLSL). We ...
  • Boubekeur, Tamy; Duguet, Florent; Schlick, Christophe (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    Point-Based Surfaces can be directly generated by 3D scanners and avoid the generation and storage of an explicit topology for a sampled geometry, which saves time and storage space for very dense and large objects, such ...
  • Sokolov, Dmitry; Plemenos, Dimitri (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    Virtual worlds exploration techniques become nowadays more and more important. The methods are used in wide variety of domains from graph drawing to robot motion. This paper is dedicated to virtual world exploration ...
  • Xu, Weiwei; Akama, Ryo; Tanaka, Hiromi T. (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    In this paper, we describe a system to reconstruct 3D face model from ancient Japanese Kabuki drawings. Because of the limitation of input, we deform the face model, which is compatible with MPEG-4 face animation standard, ...
  • Gerth, Björn; Berndt, René; Havemann, Sven; Fellner, Dieter W. (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    We present first results of a system for the ergonomic and economic production of three-dimensional interactive illustrations by non-expert users like average CH professionals. For this purpose we enter the realm of ...
  • Mudge, Mark; Voutaz, Jean-Pierre; Schroer, Carla; Lum, Marlin (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    Reflection transformation imaging offers a powerful new method of documenting and communicating numismatic cultural heritage information. The challenges of documenting numismatic material will be examined along with the ...
  • Brusco, N.; Ballan, L.; Cortelazzo, G. M. (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    A wide-spread use of 3D models in cultural heritage application requires low cost equipment and simple modeling procedures. In this context, passive 3D reconstruction methods allow to build 3D models from a set of calibrated ...
  • Bendels, G. H.; Schnabel, R.; Klein, R. (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    Inpainting is a well-known technique in the context of image and art restoration, where paint losses are filled up to the level of the surrounding paint and then coloured to match. Analogue tasks can be found in 3D geometry ...
  • Müller, Gero; Bendels, Gerhard H.; Klein, Reinhard (The Eurographics Association, 2005)
    In order to produce visually appealing digital models of cultural heritage artefacts, a meticulous reconstruction of the 3D geometry alone is often not sufficient, as colour and reflectance information give essential clues ...
