A worldwide movement in advanced manufacturing countries is seeking to reinvigorate (and revolutionize) the industrial and manufacturing core competencies with the use of the latest advances in information and communications technology. Visual computing plays an important role as the "glue factor" in complete solutions. This article positions visual(More)
Spacedesign is an innovative Mixed Reality (MR) application addressed to aesthetic design of free form curves and surfaces. It is a unique and comprehensive approach which uses task-specific configurations to support the design workflow from concept to mock-up evaluation and review. The first-phase conceptual design benefits from a workbench-like 3-D(More)
3D models play an important role in many industrial applications. Therefore semantic processing for the purposes of comparing, cataloging and archiving shapes is a major concern. Most previous work considers comparisons based on the object’s overall geometry or in a reference frame which is computed from the object’s geometry alone, disregarding its(More)
Adjacency and Laplacian matrices are popular structures to use as representations of shape graphs, because their sorted sets of eigenvalues (spectra) can be used as signatures for shape retrieval. Unfortunately, the descriptiveness of these spectra is limited, and handling graphs of different size remains a challenge. In this work, we propose a new(More)
Cartographic flow maps are graphical representations for portraying the movement of objects, such as people, goods or traffic network, from one location to another. On the one hand, flow maps can reduce visual clutter by merging single representations of movement. On the other hand, flow maps are also fast to produce and simple to understand. In this paper,(More)
Continuous technological advances in surveying, computing and digital-content delivery are strongly contributing to a change in the way Cultural Heritage is “perceived”: new tools and methodologies for documentation, reconstruction and research are being created to assist not only scholars, but also to reach more potential users (e.g. students and tourists)(More)
This paper illustrates the results of the DentroTrento project which promotes historical, artistic and cultural heritage in the area of Trentino through the use of Virtual Reality technologies. The project's goal was to implement an user friendly system which could be used by visitors of an archeological site thus fostering a process of cultural enrichment.(More)
