CEPROQHA: Cost-Effective Preservation Of Qatar Cultural Heritage Through Advanced Holoscopic 3D Imaging And Data Science

Abstract Cultural heritage takes an important part of the history of humankind as it is one of the most powerful tools for the transfer and preservation of moral identity. As a result, these cultural assets are considered highly valuable and sometimes priceless. Digital technologies provided multiple tools that address challenges related to the promotion and information access in the cultural context. However, the large data collections of cultural information have more potential to add value and address current challenges in this context with the recent progress in artificial intelligence (AI) with deep learning and data mining tools. Through the...

The 4D-CH Calw Project

Abstract The 4D -Cultural Heritage Project takes advance of Imagery from the wild (Internet) and existing repositories to reconstruct 3D Models of Monuments, Places and Landscapes. This method  however can not always reproduce a complete dataset of an object since the obliged views are depending on the prominent positions of the recording. We would like to present two different approaches to a work-flow which overcomes this issue through a semi – automated reconstruction  as well as the use of simulation with a grammar based modelling.

The Roman Maastricht VR Project

Abstract In contrast to excavated and preserved Cultural Heritage Sites in the open Landscape, City -Archaeology faces the difficulty to mediate to the public about the archaeological remains due to the absence of cohesive information given by the destructive nature of urban settlement activity causing the remains to stay indiscernible. Our focus in this paper is to explain the entire production process from data acquisition, Capturing and Digitization of existing remains, pre and post -processing of captured datasets, advanced 3D modelling techniques as well as the concept of storytelling to the resulting Digital Cultural Heritage Application and its outreach....

The Contributions of Computational Imaging Methods in Archaeology: A Case Study in Termessos (Turkey)

Abstract THE CONTRIBUTIONS OF COMPUTATIONAL IMAGING METHODS IN ARCHAEOLOGY: A CASE STUDY IN TERMESSOS (TURKEY) This study focuses on the application of digital imaging methods, Photogrammetry (Structure from Motion) and Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI) on a columnar sarcophagus located in the ancient city of Termessos (Turkey), E-1 necropolis. The work carried out on the sarcophagus produced results that contributed to the clarification of controversial issues from previous studies. With the help of the methods described here, figures depicted on the sarcophagus could be clarified and missing parts of the inscriptions could be added. The study shows the importance of...
