3D digital cultural heritage begins its life with 3D digitisation as part of a complete 3D recording approach and completes with the 3D applications and reproduction. 3D physical reproduction has gained momentum in the recent years as 3D printing technologies are becoming more and more accessible, mainly due to the reduction of cost both in […]

This is a demo of five 3D digital replicas of artefacts that one can examine in a WebGL enabled browser. It uses the X3DOM script to exploit the WebGL functionality in order to visualise real time 3D graphics without the need of any additional plug-ins in a Web page. By adviced that not all web […]

Content based retrieval engine in a Virtual Museum of Pottery An interactive virtual museum of 3D pottery artefacts has been used as a case study. The virtual visitor can perform queries to the system like ‘Where in this 3D scene I can find vessels similar to this’. Again an attempt to combine a content-based retrieval […]

3DSSE is an experimental search engine that allows the user to explore 3D scenes using keywords. The engine is based on the annotation of 3D scenes in order to identify and describe specific ontologies within that scene. The metadata that follow each 3D scene contain information about each ontology (e.g. building, statue, artefact) as well […]
