Project Description
The objective is to assist with the reconstruction of large archeological artifacts (such as pottery fragments, marble relief pieces or mosaics) using computational tools and to electronically disseminate such reconstructed artifacts (such as, through a virtual museum). We aim to bring image processing, computer vision, pattern analysis, data-mining, material science, virtual reality and archeology experts together for a unified approach to computer aided reconstruction in archeology. Large number of excavated artifacts in an archeological site makes the task of finding the matching pieces very difficult. Automation and precision at the data acquisition and reveal of hard-to-see associations by data-mining will much help to the archeologists. Computational tools would be very valuable in speeding up the reconstruction. Once reconstructed, capability of browsing the archeological artifacts through an interactive multimedia environment would be invaluable in sharing the cultural heritage.
