Xavier Aure & Thomas Bale – Automated Surface Scanner (recording available)

Automated surface scanner update: processing multi-view image data for large scale planar artworks

In this talk Xavier Aure and Thomas Bale will present their recent work on the development of an automated image-based 3D scanner to record the structure and colour of planar surfaces of artworks. The system is based on the combination of photogrammetric and photometric stereo images and generates high-resolution 2D and 3D data that can be used for documentation, visualisation and public engagement applications.

Xavier will present the scanner and some results from the recording of the painting ‘The Grand Canal, Ascension Day’ (c.1730-31) by the Italian artist Canaletto, and Thomas will discuss a multiview refinement approach that enables the correction and tiling of surface data captured with the scanner.
