A Texture Based Approach to Puzzle Assembly
Authors: M. Ş. Sağıroğlu, A. Erçil

Abstract: Reconstruction of archaeological finds from fragments, is a tedious task requiring many hours of work from the archaeologists and restoration personnel. In this paper we present a framework for the full reconstruction of the original objects using texture and surface design information on the sherd. The texture of a band outside the border of pieces is predicted by inpainting and texture synthesis methods. The confidence of this process is also defined. Feature values are derived from these original and predicted images of pieces. A combination of the feature and confidence values is used to generate an affinity measure of corresponding pieces. The
optimization of total affinity gives the best assembly of the piece. Experimental results are presented on real and artificial data.
