Capture, model, interpret: new ways of imaging ancient text artefacts

30 May 2017 1.00pm 2.00pm


Lecture Theatre, Weston Library (Map)


Jacob Dahl and Kirk Martinez



Imaging systems have been developed over the years to capture images of objects which are more detailed, have accurate colour and have revolutionised our records of our cultural heritage. Some objects have subtle surface details which are difficult to capture. We have been using a technique called 'reflectance transformation imaging'. This allows the viewer to move a virtual light around to highlight the detail of interest. This talk will explain the technique and show the systems we made to capture hundreds of images.
