3D Digital Microscopy for Characterizing Punchworks on Medieval Panel Paintings
I. Cacciari, P. Nieri, S. Siano
Article No.: 19
DOI: 10.1145/2594443

This article is devoted to a novel application of the micro-3D modeling based on shape from focus. A 3D portable digital microscope prototype has been used for the first time in order to analyze gold punchwork on medieval panel paintings. In...

Semiautomatic Parametric Modelling of the Buildings on Town Scale Models
Christine Chevrier
Article No.: 20
DOI: 10.1145/2622609

This article presents the semiautomatic parametric method we have conceived and developed for the 3D modelling of town parts of physical town scale models. On one hand, most photogrammetric and lasergrammetric methods do not use parametric models...

A Virtual Experience on the Very First Italian Computer
Giovanni A. Cignoni, Fabio Gadducci, Stefano Paci
Article No.: 21
DOI: 10.1145/2629484

Despite their temporal proximity, the technologies of the early computers are far from us. Yet, they are part of the history of science and technology, and they deserve to be studied and popularized. Being machines made to run software programs,...

Discovering Novelty Patterns from the Ancient Christian Inscriptions of Rome
Gianvito Pio, Fabio Fumarola, Antonio E. Felle, Donato Malerba, Michelangelo Ceci
Article No.: 22
DOI: 10.1145/2629513

Studying Greek and Latin cultural heritage has always been considered essential to the understanding of important aspects of the roots of current European societies. However, only a small fraction of the total production of texts from ancient...

A Fast and Robust Framework for Semiautomatic and Automatic Registration of Photographs to 3D Geometry
Ruggero Pintus, Enrico Gobbetti
Article No.: 23
DOI: 10.1145/2629514

We present a simple, fast, and robust complete framework for 2D/3D registration capable to align in a semiautomatic or completely automatic manner a large set of unordered images to a massive point cloud. Our method converts the hard to solve...

A Holistic User-Centered Approach to Immersive Digital Cultural Heritage Installations: Case Vrouw Maria
Markku Reunanen, Lily Díaz, Tommi Horttana
Article No.: 24
DOI: 10.1145/2637485

This article deals with the design and implementation of an immersive installation where users could gesturally navigate around the wreck of Vrouw Maria, a Dutch merchant ship that sank near the Finnish coast in 1771 and was rediscovered in 1999....

Using a Combination of Micro--Computed Tomography, CAD and 3D Printing Techniques to Reconstruct Incomplete 19th-Century Cantonese Chess Pieces
S. D. Laycock, G. D. Bell, N. Corps, D. B. Mortimore, G. Cox, S. May, I. Finkel
Article No.: 25
DOI: 10.1145/2629682

As scanning technologies improve new approaches to digitizing cultural heritage artefacts emerge. The use of micro--computed tomography (micro-CT) presents an interesting approach as it is capable of high-resolution scans of not just the surface...
