Bronze age thera
Bronze Age Thera

  • Modern day Santorini

  • Aegean civilization: c. 1700 BC

  • Traded with other Mediterranean civilizations

  • Evidence of fishing, agriculture, and livestock

  • Volcanic eruption c. 1650 BC

NASA Visible Earth


Akrotiri
Akrotiri

  • Major archaeological excavation since 1967

  • Well-preserved by ash

  • Most significant find: plaster wall paintings

    • Pigments excellently preserved

Akrotiri1
Akrotiri

  • Major archaeological excavation since 1967

  • Well-preserved by ash

  • Most significant find: plaster wall paintings

    • Pigments excellently preserved

    • But shattered in pieces by earthquake

Fragment characteristics
Fragment Characteristics

Conservators consider:

size, thickness

level of erosion

discoloration and fading

set of pigments

curvature / flatness

texture of the back

string impressions


Constrained 3 d acquisition protocol
Constrained 3-D Acquisition Protocol

  • Automatic turntable control

  • Acquire scans at 45°

  • Two 360°scan sequences

    • Face-down: front face at known plane

    • Face-up: front face visible


Color and normals 2 d acquisition
Color and Normals: 2-D Acquisition

  • Custom scan software

    • One-click acquisition

    • Preview scan locates fragment

  • Five scans

    • Four front orientations (photometric normals)

    • One back orientation


Scan alignment with multi way icp
Scan Alignment with Multi-Way ICP

  • Align fragments scanned on turntable

    • Axis of rotation gives initial guess

    • Standard algorithm to improve alignments:Iterative Closest Points [Besl 1992], [Chen 1992]

  • Flat front surfaces lead to instability

  • Improved algorithm: Multi-way ICP

    • Constrain all scan-to-scantransformations to be identical

    • Equivalent to solving fora single rotation axis


Front back alignment
Front/Back Alignment

  • Flipping fragment is uncalibrated

  • Little overlap between front and back scans

  • Front/back alignment is vertically unstable


Front back alignment1
Front/Back Alignment

  • Use front face to determinevertical alignment

    • Visible in front scans

    • On (calibrated) turntablesurface in back scans

  • Initial guess and ICP forwithin-plane alignment


2 d 3 d alignment
2-D/3-D Alignment

  • Flatbed scanner has superior color

  • Can’t use calibration [Levoy 2000], reliable silhouette [Lensch 2000], or features [Liu 2006][Chen 2007]

  • Use image alignment: PCA + downhill simplex

Projected 3-D Color

Flatbed Scan


Ribbon matching
Ribbon Matching

  • Try all possible alignments

  • Update alignment incrementally

  • Regular edge parameterization:similar to image correlation

Fragment matching
Fragment Matching

ICP Matching

  • Nearest neighbor correspondence search

  • Iterate to find matches

  • 45 seconds per fragment pair

Ribbon Matching

  • Regular edge sampling for correspondences

  • Exhaustive search with incremental update

  • 2 seconds per pair

Original (irregular) mesh

Resampled ribbon


Erosion detection
Erosion Detection

  • Erosion causes incorrect alignments

  • Detected on ribbons with normal constraint

Future work matching
Future Work (Matching)

  • Multi-cue matching

  • Improved ribbon matching/Handling gaps

    • Dynamic programming can probablyhandle gaps

    • Record all possible alignments instead of only best candidates to do saliency analysis

  • Global matching

    • Fuse matched fragments and re-match

    • Do global consistency checks on networks of matches


Future work scanners
Future Work (Scanners)

We want to scan:

  • large fragments

  • assembled edges?

  • edge and back normals

    Approach:

  • Hand-held scanner

  • Two cameras and a projector/fixed pattern

  • Alignment similar to in-hand scanner

  • Should be able to get normals from mutiple views
