British Museum, 1996 - Archaeology - 294 pages
Paperes from a conference on the use of electronic imaging and computer graphics in museums and archaeology which was held at the British Museum in 1994. The papers cover computer-aided design, geographic information systems, photo-realistic reconstructions, virtual reality modelling, image analysis, image processing and painting conservation. The papers demonstrate how these techniques can be used in recording, conservation, reconstruction of objects and sites, the compilation of more sophisticated databasers, in the presentation of archaeology to the public and in education. Twenty-six papers.
