  • Archaeological Field Documentation and Architectonic Analysis - a 3D Approach. Ein Zippori as Study Case 

    Hermon, Sorin; Khalaily, Hamudi; Milevski, Ianir; Amico, Nicola; Iannone, Giancarlo; Getzov, Nimrod (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    A key element in any archaeological excavation is an accurate recording of the excavated material. Since the ar-chaeological process by itself is one of destruction, the need for an accurate documentation becomes even more ...
  • Parametric 3D-fitted Frames for Packaging Heritage Artefacts 

    Sá, Asla M.; Echavarria, Karina Rodriguez; Griffin, Martin; Covill, Derek; Kaminski, Jaime; Arnold, David (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Packing fragile heritage artefacts is a challenge almost all heritage organisations have to deal with when faced with the task of transporting or storing the artefacts. The packaging solution requires fitting the artefact ...
  • Developing Open-Source Software for Art Conservators 

    Kim, Min H.; Rushmeier, Holly; ffrench, John; Passeri, Irma (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Art conservators now have access to a wide variety of digital imaging techniques to assist in examining and documenting physical works of art. Commonly used techniques include hyperspectral imaging, 3D scanning and medical ...
  • Building Scholar e-communities Using a Semantically Aware Framework: Archaia Kypriaki Grammateia Digital Corpus 

    Pitzalis, Denis; Christophorou, Elina; Kyriakou, Niki; Georgiadou, Aristoula; Niccolucci, Franco (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Web-based learning communities have developed into a very popular vehicle for sharing information amongst students, researchers and enthusiastic users and are slowly gaining importance in the humanities field. Unfortunately, ...
  • Insourcing, Outsourcing and Crowdsourcing 3D Collection Formation: Perspectives for Cultural Heritage Sites 

    Kaminski, Jaime; Echavarria, Karina Rodriguez; Arnold, David; Palma, Gianpaolo; Scopigno, Roberto; Proesmans, Marc; Stevenson, James (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    This paper presents three different propositions for cultural heritage organisations on how to digitise objects in 3D. It is based on the practical evaluation of three different deployment experiments that use different ...
  • Interactive Exploration of Gigantic Point Clouds on Mobile Devices 

    Rodriguez, Marcos Balsa; Gobbetti, Enrico; Marton, Fabio; Pintus, Ruggero; Pintore, Giovanni; Tinti, Alex (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    New embedded CPUs that sport powerful graphics chipsets have the potential to make complex 3D applications feasible on mobile devices. In this paper, we present a scalable architecture and its implementation for mobile ...
  • Authoring Animated Interactive 3D Museum Exhibits using a Digital Repository 

    Zmugg, René; Thaller, Wolfgang; Hecher, Martin; Schiffer, Thomas; Havemann, Sven; Fellner, Dieter W. (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    We present the prototype of a software system to streamline the serial production of simple interactive 3D animations for the display in museum exhibitions. We propose dividing the authoring process in two phases, a designer ...
  • Large-scale Immersive Reconstitution of a Neolithic Corbel Dome 

    Gaugne, Ronan; Barreau, Jean-Baptiste; Cousseau, Florian; Gouranton, Valérie (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    We propose a workflow of tools and procedures to reconstruct an existing archaeological site as a virtual 3D reconstitution in a large scale immersive system. This interdisciplinary endeavor, gathering archaeologists and ...
  • PileBars: Scalable Dynamic Thumbnail Bars 

    Brivio, Paolo; Tarini, Marco; Ponchio, Federico; Cignoni, Paolo; Scopigno, Roberto (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    We introduce PileBars, a new class of animated thumbnail-bars supporting browsing of large image datasets (hundreds or thousands of images). Since the bar is meant to be just one element of a GUI, it covers only a small ...
  • Semantically Rich 3D Documentation for the Preservation of Tangible Heritage

    Traditionally, 3D acquisition technologies have been used to record heritage artefacts and to support specific tasks such as conservation or provenance verification. These exercises are usually a one-off as the technology ...
  • Vectorising Building Footprints From Historic Maps 

    Brown, Philip G.; Laycock, Stephen D.; Day, Andy M. (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
