Resumo

Through the increasing availability of high-quality consumer hardware for advanced imaging tasks, digital imaging and scanning are gradually pervading general practice in cultural heritage preservation and archaeology. In most cases, however, imaging and scanning are predominantly means for documentation and archival, and digital processing too often ends with the creation of a digital image or 3D model. At the example of multiple projects, the speaker will demonstrate how careful analysis of the underlying cultural-heritage questions allows for bespoke solutions that--through joint development of imaging procedures, data analysis and visualisations--directly support conservators and humanities researchers in their work. Tim Weyrich will report on his experiences with fresco reconstruction at the Akrotiri Excavation, Santorini, and the reconstruction of fire-damaged parchment with London Metropolitan Archives, as well as recent and ongoing projects that have not yet been publicly announced.
