A system for high-volume acquisition and matching of fresco fragments

A system for high-volume acquisition and matching of fresco fragments | Fresco Reconstruction | Scoop.it

In an archaeological setting, a practical acquisition system for routine use on every artifact and fragment would open new possibilities for archiving, analysis, and dissemination. We present an inexpensive system for acquiring all three types of information, and associated metadata, for small objects such as fragments of wall paintings. The acquisition system requires minimal supervision, so that a single, non-expert user can scan at least 10 fragments per hour.

Learning how to match fresco fragments

Learning how to match fresco fragments | Fresco Reconstruction | Scoop.it

In this article, we investigate a machine learning approach that computes the probability that a match is correct based on the combination of many features. We explore this machine learning approach for ranking matches in three different sets of fresco fragments, finding that classifiers based on many match properties can be significantly more effective at ranking proposed matches than scores based on any single property alone.

Multi-feature matching of fresco fragments

Multi-feature matching of fresco fragments | Fresco Reconstruction | Scoop.it

We present a multiple-feature approach for determining matches between small fragments of archaeological artifacts such as Bronze-Age and Roman frescoes. In contrast with traditional 2D and 3D shape matching approaches, we introduce a set of feature descriptors that are based on not only color and shape, but also normal maps. These are easy to acquire and combine high data quality with discriminability and robustness to some types of deterioration.
