Modeling and Visualization of Rock Carving Cultural Heritage Sites in Dazu

Junfeng Chen, Qinping Zhao
2005 IAPR International Workshop on Machine Vision Applications  
Over the past few years, due to the advances in laser scanning techniques, 3D modeling software, computer power and virtual reality, many cultural heritage applications require 3D modeling and realistic visualization of the heritage models for various purposes. In such a project to virtualize the Dazu Rock Carvings, we proposed a commercially available solution. In this paper, we present this solution, along with the challenges we faced, the lessons we learned. We in particular focus on the

Examples of our works are given and a video animation has been created to show the results.
