Acquisition and Presentation of Virtual Surrogates for Cultural Heritage Artefacts

In proceedings of EVA 2012 Berlin, pages 50-57, Gesellschaft zur Förderung angewandter Informatik e.V., Nov. 2012
 

Abstract

The appearance of cultural heritage artefact is perceived by the eyes of an observer. The perception is caused by absorption, scattering and reflection of light. For this process, not only the three-dimensional form but also the materials the object consists of play an important role. To provide a faithful impression, both aspects, shape as well as appearance, have to be acquired, stored and rendered. However, conventional techniques, such as pictures or (possibly textured) geometric 3D models, are not sufficient for that task. Therefore, our research deals with devices and representations that allow for a faithful digital reproduction, a virtual surrogate. The presented technique facilitates the mostly automatic acquisition and processing of small to medium-sized opaque artefacts, the interactive inspection of the digitized objects and the fast and progressive transmission over the Internet.
