  • A Cultural Heritage Repository as Source for Learning Materials 

    Patel, Manjula; Walczak, Krzysztof; Giorgini, Fabrizio; White, Martin (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    We discuss a system for the digital capture of museum artefacts which are accumulated into a multimedia repository comprising 3D models, images, video and sound clips as well as textual descriptions. A comprehensive set ...
  • An Authoring Tool for Interactive Digital Storytelling 

    Linaza, M.T.; Eskudero, H.; Lamsfus, C.; Marcos, G. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    Stories that are read are usually linear and fixed in their form and structure. Stories that are told are often flexible in these respects: the storyteller can change order and content in response to the audience reaction ...
  • Generative Parametric Design of Gothic Window Tracery 

    Havemann, Sven; Fellner, Dieter W. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    Gothic architecture, and especially window tracery, exhibits quite complex geometric shape configurations. But this complexity is achieved by combining only a few basic geometric patterns. We present some principles of ...
  • 3D Face Reconstruction from Skull Aimed to Archaeological Applications. The Site of Murecine: a Case Study 

    Abate, A.F.; Nappi, M.; Ricciardi, S.; Sabatino, G. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    This paper presents a methodology to generate a 3D face model from its skull that is specifically aimed to archaeological/anthropological applications. The proposed approach to facial reconstruction, starting from the well ...
  • 3D orientation of archaeological fragments coming from a Gothic spire 

    Laugerotte, C.; Warzée, N. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    In this paper, we address the problem of 3D mesh orientation applied to archaeological fragments coming from a Gothic spire. Initially, these fragments are handled leading to their deterioration while the accuracy of ...
  • An environment for the analysis and reconstruction of archaeological objects 

    Laugerotte, C.; Warzée, N. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    To assist archaeologists in their work of analysis and reconstruction of archaeological objects from their fragments, several environments have been developped in which virtual fragments can be manipulated. As a part of ...

    The results of a project aimed to the study, reconstruction and presentation to the public of a monument disassembled and dispersed, the mausoleum of the emperor Arrigo VII, are presented here. We used modern 3D graphics ...
  • Identifying technologies used in Cultural Heritage 

    Owen, Ruth; Buhalis, Dimitrios; Pletinckx, Daniël (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    There are a growing number of Information Communication Technology (ICT) applications in cultural heritage. However despite funding constraints, projects often involve similar or even duplicate work carried out at the same ...
  • The Shotton River and Mesolithic Dwellings: Recreating the Past from Geo-Seismic Data Sources 

    Chang, Eugene; Stone, Robert J.; Arvanitis, Theodoros N. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)

  • iClay: Digitizing Cuneiform 

    Cohen, Jonathan; Duncan, Donald; Snyder, Dean; Cooper, Jerrold; Kumar, Subodh; Hahn, Daniel; Chen, Yuan; Purnomo, Budirijanto; Graettinger, John (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    Advances in digital technology for the graphic and textual representation of manuscripts have not, until recently, been applied to the world's oldest manuscripts, cuneiform tablets. This is due in large part both to the ...
  • Image-Based Registration of 3D-Range Data Using Feature Surface Elements 

    Bendels, Gerhard Heinrich; Degener, Patrick; Wahl, Roland; Körtgen, Marcel; Klein, Reinhard (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    Digitizing real-life objects via range scanners, stereo vision or tactile sensors usually requires the composition of multiple range images. In this paper we exploit intensity images often recorded with the range data and ...
  • A Point-Based Approach for Capture, Display and Illustration of Very Complex Archeological Artefacts
