Feasibility study to optimize 3D scanning processes using DI to improve the quality of digital cultural heritage content
Lithuania accumulates and preserves valuable cultural heritage, which is very important for the preservation of the country's identity and culture, the promotion of the education of the public and its creativity, and the development of artistic and scientific activities. As technology evolves, cultural heritage can be qualitatively digitized to reflect texture, properties, and shapes of not only two-dimensional but also three-dimensional objects, avoiding noise and extraneous points that often occur with the classical point cloud processing methods.
BPTI is carrying out a project and feasibility study to optimize 3D scanning processes using DI to improve the quality of digital cultural heritage content. The feasibility study will:
analyse user needs and literature;
identify the most efficient DI algorithms and scanning techniques for processing 3D point arrays of complex objects in order to compare the performance (quality) of different methods;
identify and evaluate the use of artificial intelligence methods to optimize 3D scanning processes;
identify and evaluate noise canceling methods in the point cloud that occur during 3D scanning;
evaluate suitable techniques for 3D scanning of glossy and transparent objects.
The project is funded by the Research Council of Lithuania.
