Saint Neophytos Enkleistriotis Case Study towards Holistic Digital Documentation

 Cyprus University of Technology


Abstract. The emergence of a holistic approach to monument documentation is inextricably associated with the term ‘monument’, the quest of its meaning and its interpretation to the people involved in the documenta-tion of the past. The main reason is the necessity to set tangible heritage in its wider context, and relate it with its physical environment and its intangible aspects (spiritual, political and social values) [1–3]. In this way, a monument can be seen as a whole, within a place with a soul – a genius loci [4]. This example focuses on the holistic approach taken to documentation activities St. Neophytos; a church with tremendous monumental interest both for its tangible and intangible aspects as well as the unique blending of natural and man-made environment. A full description is provided in [1].

Bode 360° – A virtual tour of the Berlin Bode-Museum

Gülcker, Wolfgang/ Hagedorn-Saupe, Monika (SPK)/ von Hagel, Frank (SPK)/ Rohde-Enslin Stefan (SPK)/ Peukert Arlene (SPK)

This case study of excellence presents how museums, memorials, and cultural heritage institutions running on a limited budget can develop a virtual panoramic tour with basic functionalities like navigation, zooming, information hotspots, and integrated links to websites, online databases, platforms, etc. As a ViMM best-practice example serves the project Bode 360° – A virtual tour of the Berlin Bode-Museum planned and realized by Wolfgang Gülcker. A presentation of the main components and services of Bode 360°, a sketch of how to create a virtual panoramic tour, and a brief look at future possibilities are the central topics of this paper.

Nadia Magnenat‐Thalmann, Nedjma Cadi‐Yazli, Simon Senecal, Yvain Tisserand / MIRALab, University of Geneva

In the last decades, the generation of the 3D avatar has proven to be a significant challenge and has limit commercial usage due to the high costs associated. Improvements in image-based 3D reconstruction and camera hardware allow us to reduce the cost of 3D scanners drastically. This paper presents a fast and complete pipeline for a full body 3D scanning system

KEYWORDS: 3D Image Based Scanning, Digitization process, 3D scanner,  Body modelling, Avatar creation
