The Centre of Image and Material Analysis in Cultural Heritage (CIMA) in Vienna and its Current Activities. Part II: Computer Vision


This article presents the current state of the computer vision activities of CIMA. The focus lies, on the one hand, on the application of multispectral imaging (MSI) techniques and, on the other, on the development and application of image processing methods, both in order to enhance the readability of palimpsests and damaged manuscripts. Image processing methods furthermore enable automated investigations of the codicology and paleography of manuscripts such as layout, line structure, or identification of scribes.
