Full-day Workshop on Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI)
Through demonstrations and hands-on experience, participants in this workshop learned about the set-up and capture of an image sequence for creating RTIs of rock art in various settings. Also included were lectures on advances and current research in RTI technology.
|Presenters||Mark Mudge and Carla Schroer|
|Presented at||ARARA 2009|
|Date and Location||May 22–25, 2009: Bakersfield, CA|
Archaeological Institute of America (AIA)
“Telling Stories with Advanced Imaging: Ancient Greek Epigraphy, Museum and Library Conservation, Rock Art”
This free lecture at Stanford University was presented by the CHI founders about their experience using Reflectance Transformation Imaging for conservation purposes in the fields of Greek archaeology and rock art.
|Presenters||Mark Mudge and Carla Schroer|
|Presented at||Meyer Forum, Stanford University's Meyer Library|
|Date and Location||April 3, 2009: Stanford, CA|
“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|
