The paper Web-based Multi-layered Exploration of Annotated Image-based Shape and Material Models (Alberto Jaspe Villanueva, Ruggero Pintus, Andrea Giachetti, and Enrico Gobbetti) won the Best Paper Award at the GCH 2019 International Conference (17th EUROGRAPHICS Workshop on Graphics and Cultural Heritage, Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, November 6-9, 2019).
The work describes novel techniques for exploring detailed image-based shape and material models integrated with structured, spatially-associated descriptive information. The paper was presented by Alberto Jaspe Villanueva, who has also been invited to give a talk in a panel of experts about 3D annotation of Digital Representations of Cultural Heritage (for details, see the technical program).
A prototype implementation of the approach, dubbed MARLIE, has been released as open source.
The project received funding from Sardinian Regional Authorities under projects VIGECLAB and TDM (POR FESR 2014-2020 Action 1.2.2).
