Digital Heritage

£19.99

Product description

In the fields of documentation and conservation of cultural heritage assets, there is a constant need for higher quality records and better analytical tools for extracting information about the condition of artefacts. Digital photography and digital image processing provide these capabilities, recent technological advances in both fields promise new levels of performance for the capture and understanding of colour images. This inter-disciplinary book covers the imaging of decorated surfaces in historical buildings and the digitisation of documents, paintings and objects in museums and galleries, showing how user requirements may be met by application of powerful digital imaging techniques. Numerous case studies illustrate the methods used to help preserve these historical heirlooms. The covers have some light general rubbing marks and indentations on the glossy surface, the book is otherwise in fine condition.
