Özmen, Can and Balcısoy, Selim (2008) Bi-manual interactive tools for cultural heritage researchers. In: 2008 International Conference on Cyberworlds, Hangzhou, China
The availability of intuitive, user-friendly and specialized software to work with 3D models of cultural heritage artifacts is as important as the availability of
low-cost and robust data acquisition techniques for the adoption of digitized 3D models
in cultural heritage research. As recent developments in 3D scanning technologies have
made the digitization of artifacts affordable; the amount of digitized models available
for research increases rapidly. Consequently the need for specialized software for
cultural heritage research and practice on 3D models becomes more apparent. The lack of
spatial measurement tools familiar to cultural heritage experts in traditional 3D modeling
packages motivated us to create a simple, freely available, and extensible measurement
tools system, CH Toolbox, which was designed exclusively for cultural heritage research.
The proposed system visualizes digitized models of artifacts in 3D and allows the user to
analyze the pieces using a spaceball and mouse driven bi-manual interface. We describe here
the components of the CH Toolbox system, specificially the virtual tape measure, caliper,
rim chart and a surface area estimation tool. Additionally, we present justification for CH Toolbox's
bi-manual interaction scheme according to Guiard's Kinematic Chain model for asymmetric human
skilled bi-manual actions.
