Collaborators

Roger Easton have worked for several years of Roger_Archimedes3 the application of modern imaging technologies to recover writings from historical manuscripts. I started in this work as a collaboration with the late Dr. Robert Johnston of RIT and Dr. Keith Knox, formerly of Xerox Corporation in Rochester, NY and now retired from the USAF Research Laboratory in Kihei, HI. Our early activity concentrated on the Dead Sea Scrolls, but most of my effort now is devoted to imaging of the Archimedes Palimpsest and the Sarvamoola granthas. Homepage

 

Lazarus

The Lazarus Project: Up to now, the area that has become known as Digital Humanities has been focused primarily on large-scale digitization projects of historical manuscripts and printed documents. The goal of these projects is typically to reproduce the visual appearance of the text and sometimes to approximate the experience of reading the actual document. The Lazarus Project intends to explore a complementary path to these efforts by taking advantage of the recent advance of imaging technology. Homepage

Jubilee

The Jubilees Palimpsest Project, pioneering the recovery of illegible text from ancient manuscripts through new tools in digital archaeology. One example: Spectral RTI combines the advantages of spectral imaging (spatial resolution, color spectrum range and resolution, processed enhancements) with the advantages of Reflectance Transformation Imaging (pixel-level texture mapping, interactivity, enhancements).
