This paper introduces the 3D Measurement and Virtual Reconstruction of Ancient Lost Worlds of Europe system (3D MURALE). It consists of a set of tools for recording, reconstructing, encoding, visualising and database searching/querying that operate on buildings, building parts, statues, statue parts, pottery, stratigraphy, terrain geometry and texture and(More)
Many textures require complex models to describe their intricate structures. Their modeling can be simplified if they are considered composites of simpler subtextures. After an initial, unsupervised segmentation of the composite texture into the subtextures, it can be described at two levels. One is a label map texture, which captures the layout of the(More)
Textures can often more easily be described as a composition of subtextures than as a single texture. The paper proposes a way to model and synthesize such “composite textures”, where the layout of the different subtextures is itself modeled as a texture, which can be generated automatically. Examples are shown for building materials with an intricate(More)
Mapping textured images on smoothly approximated surfaces is often used to conceal the loss of their real, fine-grained relief. A limitation of mapping a fixed texture in such cases is that it will only be correct for one viewing and one illumination direction. The presence of geometric surface details causes changes that simple foreshortening and global(More)
