121 Computers have long been useful in rock art site recording and database management. More recently, techniques for stitching overlapping photographs to create panoramas or mosaics of panels or entire sites have been developed for site documentation. This was discussed in detail by Mark and Billo (1999). Current techniques have advanced due to new software packages that add spherical and cubic projections (e.g. REALVIS Stitcher). Digital images can be linked to the site locations with GIS…

DIGITAL IMAGE ANALYSIS OF THE VISIBLE REGION THROUGH SIMULATION OF ROCK ART PAINTINGS ÁNALISIS DE IMAGEN DIGITAL DE LA REGIÓN VISIBLE MEDIANTE SIMULACIÓN DE PINTURAS DE ARTE RUPESTRE
Non-destructive rock art recording techniques are getting special attention in the last years, opening new research lines in order to improve the level of documentation and understanding of our rich
Documenting and Analyzing Rock, Paintings from Torres Strait, NE Australia, with Digital Photography and Computer Image Enhancement
Abstract The deterioration of rock-art over time is an important concern for indigenous communities, archaeologists, rock-art researchers, and cultural heritage managers. Computer enhancement has
New Applications of the Image Grand Tour
The image grand tour (IGT) is a method for visualizing multispectral images or multiple registered images. Such images can be described as having a multivariate pixel vector associated with each
An accessible, agile and low‐cost workflow for 3D virtual analysis and automatic vector tracing of engravings: Atlantic rock art analysis
TLDR
A representative sample of Atlantic rock art was documented using an affordable and time‐optimized methodology for image‐based modelling with free software at all stages of the process, which improves the promotion of documentation of heritage through professional and social collaboration.
Computer vision methods and rock art: towards a digital detection of pigments
A non-invasive procedure for assessing and interpreting the pigments of rock art paintings through computer vision and photogrammetric techniques is presented. The method is designed to document and
Why digital enhancement of rock paintings works: rescaling and saturating colours
With the advent of relatively inexpensive image-handling computer programmes, digital image enhancement is more readily available to archaeologists. This paper describes the principles behind image
Why Not a Single Image? Combining Visualizations to Facilitate Fieldwork and On-Screen Mapping
TLDR
This paper provides a “recipe” and a tool for a mix of visualization techniques and blend modes, including all the settings, to compute a visualization for archaeological topography that meets all of the criteria of a good visualization.
Using CAPTCHAs to Index Cultural Artifacts
TLDR
This work shows that it can use CAPTCHAs, puzzles designed to tell humans and computers apart, to segment and index rock art, and demonstrates its system is capable of acting as a secure CAPTCHA, while producing data that allows for indexing the rock art.
