Visualization of CH Models: Seeking for Just Visual Quality or Also Informative Content

Roberto Scopigno

Detailed and accurate 3D models of Cultural Heritage artifacts are becoming widely available by the diffusion of several new technologies for sem-automatic 3D digitalization. Very dense models require efficient data representations to be rendered in real time (either locally or on the web).

The talk will present current multiresolution approaches for efficient CH data representation and visualization, focusing on both triangle-based and point-based solutions which allow to enconde geometry and color data in a visualization-efficient manner.

But efficiency and visual quality of the visualization are not enough. Another emerging issue is how to enhance the interactive presentation of the artifact with capabilities that allow us to present also all the prossible related meta-information. User are thus looking for technologies able to geo-reference and annotate any type of information on the digital skin of the artwork. Recent efforts in this direction will be presented and discussed.
