Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI), RTISAD

AHRC Follow-on Funding Project - Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI), RTISAD 

The AHRC has awarded the Follow-on Funding to build on the RTISAD project. This project is a collaboration between Graeme Earl in the Archaeological Computing Research Group and Kirk Martinez in the Web and Internet Science group (WAIS) at the University of Southampton, and Jacob Dahl at the University of Oxford, Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies. The grant will explore the possibilities of digital imaging in ancient document research, in archaeology, in industrial applications such as textile design, and in other contexts. The underlying technology called Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI) uses multiple images to produce an interactive representation of subtle surface details such as brush strokes on paintings.
