Predictive Techniques for 3D Data Augmentation in Cultural Heritage
In the past decade, significant effort has been directed toward the development of robust methodologies and supporting technology for enabling and populating specialized repositories of digitized cultural heritage (CH) artefacts, including best practice guides and large-scale digitization projects. Furthermore, a systematic effort has been focused on the process of indexing and annotation of digital collections, enabling meaningful interpretations in a multitude of application scenaria such as on-line digital repositories and virtual reconstructions.

Up to now, digitized data have been exploited in their existing form in numerous CH application scenaria. The rapidly increasing digitized CH content however, can be used to provide feedback for the generation of new information itself. Based on the experience and on-going efforts within the PRESIOUS EU-funded project, this workshop attempts to present existing and on-going research in technologies and practical applications that augment the geometric data of digital CH objects by predictive generative processes guided by geometry processing, analysis and shape matching methods for 3D objects. The primary directions of the discussion will be: technologies for automatic scan completion, erosion simulation and prediction for stone monuments, and automatic object reassembly and repair of damaged and fractured CH objects. We will also touch upon approaches to evaluate the developed new techniques from the algorithmic and archaeology-application domain.

The Workshop will consist of a number of presentations accompanied by software demonstrations, each of which will last 1-1.5 hrs. A discussion session will follow.

The Use of 3D GIS Platforms for Intra-Site Investigation in Archaeology
In the last decade archaeological documentation strategies have been considerably improved by the use of advanced 3D acquisition systems. The systematic use of Laser scanning, photogrammetry and computer vision, in support of intra-site archaeological investigation, provides archaeologists with new opportunities to document and analyse archaeological sites. Moreover, the possibility to visualize and manage 3D texturized models into a GIS platform have procured the opportunity to reconstruct and visualize, in three dimensions, the spatial and temporal relations between the different data acquired during the field investigation process.

During this workshop different workflows of data development and implementation will be presented. In specific, different strategies to generate, geo-reference and analyze 3D models will be discussed through the review of some case studies. Finally the inclusion of high-resolution models, new mechanism of interaction for navigation and annotation will be discussed.
