“Reflectance Transformation Imaging: The Next Generation”

This talk explores a set of new reflectance transformation (RTI) tools developed by an international group of collaborators brought together by Cultural Heritage Imaging (CHI). These new tools provide novel approaches to the acquisition, processing, and viewing of real-world reflectance information and the 3D shape and material properties it discloses.

Presenters Mark Mudge and Carla Schroer, Marlin Lum, Michael Ashley
Presented at Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA) 2009: “Making History Interactive: Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology”
Date and Location March 22–26, 2009: Williamsburg, Virginia
