eSSENCE@LU 3:7 - Using high performance computing resources for the record and analysis of cultural heritage sites

Project: Research

Project Details


This project aims at defining and testing new three-dimensional (3D) acquisition workflows of large cultural heritage sites employing high performance computing resources. This will allow to process onsite high-resolution raw data, recorded by means of close-range photogrammetry and laser scanning, and overcome a critical hurdle that is affecting the quality of actual acquisition campaigns.
