General Information about ViHAP3D

The ViHAP3D Project aims at preserving, presenting, accessing, and promoting cultural heritage by means of interactive, high-quality 3D graphics. Nearly all our cultural heritage is inherently three-dimensional, and furthermore 3D computer graphics is conceived more and more as the most powerful medium for virtual representation of all kind of complex data.

The project aims at the development of new tools in the following three problem areas:

  • 3D scanning for the acquisition of accurate and visually rich 3D models
  • post-processing, data representation, and efficient rendering for the detailed interactive display and inspection of such models even on low cost platforms
  • virtual heritage tools for the presentation and navigation in high-quality digital model collections
More detailed information and application examples can be found in the ViHAP3D Project Presentation below.
