In recent years, high-resolution recording of heritage sites has stimulated a lot of research in fields like photogrammetry, computer vision, and computer graphics. Numerous algorithms and methodologies have been proposed in the literature for heritage recording from photogrammetry and laser scanner 3D data. In practice, what a 3D photographer needs for(More)
Digitally reconstructing a large and complex heritage site, for example a medieval castle, for documentation and virtual reality simulation is a challenging task that requires combining models created by different data sets from several digitisation technologies. Our approach resembles the level of detail (LOD) concept used in visualization of complex(More)

This paper presents the work that was accomplished in preparing multimedia products for cultural heritage interpretation and entertainment. Data fusion techniques were applied to three cases: the remains of Temple C of Selinunte, Sicily, the Byzantine Crypt of Santa Cristina, Apulia and a bronze sculpture from the 6th century BC found in Ugento, Apulia. It(More)
This paper presents a summary of the 3D modelling work that was accomplished in preparing multimedia products about the Byzantine Crypt of Santa Cristina, Apulia and some partial results on an ongoing project to rebuild temple C of Selinunte, Sicily. An effective approach based upon high-resolution photo-realistic texture mapping onto 3D models generated(More)

ABSTRACT This paper presents the work that was accomplished in preparing a multimedia CDROM about the history of a Byzantine Crypt. An effective approach based upon high-resolution(More)
This paper describes the content and the rational of a CD-ROM that brings both the history and the technology enthusiast to a new level of cognition about Western European history. This bilingual (Italian/English) digital document allows the visitor access to historical information about the Metopes of Selinunte and the temples remains that are tributary of(More)
The National Research Council of Canada (NRC) has collaborated with numerous Canadian and international heritage institutions on the development of a complete suite of 3D imaging technologies for archival quality imaging, analysis and display of 3D models of museum objects and heritage sites including ancient crypt and grottos. The technology includes(More)
