The reassembly of fractured 3D objects from their parts is an important problem in cultural heritage and other domains. We approach reassembly from a geometric matching perspective and propose a pipeline for the automatic solution of the problem, where an efficient and generic three-level coarse-to-fine search strategy is used for the underlying global(More)
Virtual environments have been valued as being extremely motivating for learners and therefore are employed as an innovative, more accessible framework to deliver education and entertainment to the public. Recent advances in creating videogame applications imbedded with effective learning principles, along with the evolution of human computer interfaces(More)
The reassembly of fractured 3D objects is a critical problem in computational archaeology, and other application domains. An essential part of this problem is to distinguish the regions of the object that belong to the original surface from the fractured ones. A general strategy to solve this region classification problem is to first divide the surface of(More)
Until recently virtual environments and videogame applications rarely incorporated any deep cultural or educational principles. Current research in the area of virtual reality applications, clearly indentify that they are extremely motivating for learners and therefore can be employed as an innovative, more accessible framework to deliver education while at(More)
The employment of innovative forms of technology in the areas of art and entertainment is receiving significant attention from the research community in the context of evaluating new forms of expression. Recent developments in tangible interaction, pervasive sensing, wearable computing, and mobile communications bring about the potential to connect, in an(More)
The problem of object restoration from eroded fragments where large parts could be missing is of high relevance in archaeology. Manual restoration is possible and common in practice but it is a tedious and error-prone process, which does not scale well. Solutions for specific parts of the problem have been proposed but a complete reassembly and repair(More)
We present a novel and generic user-guided approach for the digital reconstruction of cultural heritage finds from fragments, which operates directly on generic 3D objects. Central to our approach is a three-tier geometric registration approach that addresses the reassembly problem using i) the contact surface of the fractured objects, ii) feature curves on(More)
