Reconstructing Lost Worlds. Computer Vision and Virtual Reality for Cultural Heritage Preservation. Methods & Techniques

A seminar by John W. Hessler
Kunsthistorisches Institut, Via dei Servi 51, Florence
January 17, 2017 at 6:00 pm

 

Digital preservation techniques that focus on the 3D modeling of objects and the use of virtual reality simulations have become increasingly popular in archaeological and museum environments and have recently featured prominently in the media with the destruction of various UNESCO World Heritage sites from the ravages of war and terrorism.

This seminar will give participants an introduction to 3D modeling techniques by focusing on structure-from-motion imaging and photogrammetric methods using open source software that allow the production of state-of-the-art 3D and virtual reality models.
