    A description of multispectral image capture is presented from a signal processing point of view. Indeed, this article is based on an equation that models the multispectral acquisition of images. The main components of this equation are described. They correspond to the lighting conditions, the filters, the sensor sensitivity, and associated noise sources. Moreover, the optimization problems invol... View full abstract»

    Identifying the materials of a painting is a crucial step in any conservation process. When the objective is to prepare an intervention plan, it is absolutely necessary to understand the matters the restorer is going to encounter. Also, when the aim is a better understanding of the artwork, and perhaps an authenticity check, it is highly relevant to know which materials were employed, since they m... View full abstract»

    A survey of the literature reveals that image processing tools aimed at supplementing the art historian's toolbox are currently in the earliest stages of development. To jump-start the development of such methods, the Van Gogh and Kroller-Muller museums in The Netherlands agreed to make a data set of 101 high-resolution gray-scale scans of paintings within their collections available to groups of ...

    In building a digital library of Chinese calligraphy, it is desirable to preserve the dynamic writing as well as the aesthetic properties of the masterpieces. Compared with the work on computer synthesis of Chinese calligraphy, we are dealing with the reverse problem; it can be achieved by performing image analysis on the archaic Chinese calligraphic images to obtain a model-based parametric repre...

    In this article developments and performance analysis of image matching for detailed surface reconstruction of heritage objects is discussed. Three dimensional image-based modeling of heritages is a very interesting topic with many possible applications. In this article we propose a multistage image-based modeling approach that requires only a limited amount of human interactivity and is capable o... View full abstract»

    In this article, we discuss the development of automatic artifact reconstruction systems capable of coping with the realities of real-world geometric puzzles that anthropologists and archaeologists face on a daily basis. Such systems must do more than find matching fragments and subsequently align these matched fragments; these systems must be capable of simultaneously solving an unknown number of...

    Classical techniques for solving linear inverse problems have been presented. Our aim was to show how these classical techniques are applied in current state-of-the-art imaging systems. Moreover, we have provided a classification of the techniques into four families: FT-based, direct reconstruction, indirect reconstruction, and interpolation. We hope that this classification will guide the curious... View full abstract»
