The workshop takes place on 16-17 May 2015. We would like to express our thanks to the Democritus University of Thrace for hosting the workshop at the […]

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 […]

The project involved the three-dimensional digitization and reconstruction of urban areas. The project deals with the idea of combining the usage of commercial and open source software systems in 3D graphics in order to produce realistic virtual walkthroughs for culture heritage promotion with a minimum budget and low cost infrastructure. We have attempted the 3D […]

The Byzantine fortress of Kavala is located on top of the peninsula of Virgin Mary, where the old town is built. In Byzantine times and later, many successive reconstructions and alterations to the fortifications have been made by the Byzantines, the Venetians and the Turks. The fortress at its present condition was built during the […]

Case: Digitization of Religious Monuments in the region of Mani, Peloponnese The project involves the digitization and 3D reconstruction of a Byzantine church in the area of Stavri in Mani and the Post-Byzantine church of Aghios Vasileios in the Kelefa settlement. The goal of the project was the universal dissemination of the monuments. The virtual […]

‘Clepsydra’ – Cultural Heritage Digitization Center provides integrated solutions for 2D and 3D digitization projects. Its state-of-the-art infrastructure ensures high quality results and, at the same time, various alternatives to challenging digitization projects by taking under consideration any particularities that may arise.
