Beatrice's Project Proposal
Exploring VR Tools to aid Historical Artifact Archiving
3D scanning has enabled artifact analysis and archiving to be done in a digital format, which can be convenient for fragile objects and helpful for remote collaboration. This project explores VR tools to visualize those 3D models.
This is broken down into 3 parts:
Comparing existing VR model editing/masking tools
Aligning 2 models using feature matching
Displaying the models in a collaborative space with interactive map elements and scalable objects
This tool is primarily to be used by those collecting 3D scans of objects. This will explore whether VR tools give more precise edits and an easier interface to interact with the objects.
