Lecture: Computer Vision for Cultural Heritage Preservation

Aim of course

The lecture is intended for computer science students to gain insight into cultural heritage preservation and management techniques. Examples of applications at excavations, museums, and cultural heritage sites like churches and castles and artefacts found on CH sites are used to show the importance of state-of-the-art techniques in CH preservation.

Subject of course

The lecture will focus on new sensor technologies and methods for field recording and data capture and will include the following topics:
3D scanning and plotting for CH, 3D reconstruction, and 3D surface modeling techniques, including VR museum applications for CH, project studies and experiences, data organization and data exchange, planning of CH projects, high-resolution multispectral imaging and will give an insight into all related fields in CH preservation like historic preservation, documents and archives, sites and monuments, living cultural heritage, and cultural property. Examples of such systems include On-Site Reconstruction Experience, Multimodal Interface for Safe Presentation of Valuable Objects, Tools for Stratigraphic Data Recording, e-Tourism through Cultural Routes, Archaeological documentation for the Semantic Web, and Image-based Modeling, to name a few.
