International Workshop on Recording, Modeling and Visualization of Cultural Heritage, May 22-27, 2005, Centro Stefano Franscini, Monte Verita
The objective of this work is to evaluate the performance requirements of a 3D acquisition system for the recording and documentation of paintings. Two laser scanners were tested. A very high-resolution RGB color laser range scanner (range resolution 10 µm) was used to acquire the very fine 3D and color details of the surface of paintings. The second system designed for larger volumes had two main roles: to acquire the overall shape of the painting and to track and monitor the position of the high-resolution laser range scanner for global positioning. An evaluation of the results, the advantages and limitations of 3D are presented with a special emphasis on range artifacts, residual errors, system speed and global usefulness of 3D imaging and modeling, from an application perspective.
