Reflectance Transformation Imaging
Short courses from the University of Lincoln
The surface topography of objects is key for understanding their material characteristics, asses their state of preservation, reveal hidden details and explore how they were made and used in the past. RTI is being used for recording texture and colour and revealing surface morphology. It produces interactive relighting files particularly useful for documentation, condition assessment and monitoring, presentation and online dissemination.
The theoretical part of this short course will explain the fundamental concepts, including instrumentation, data acquisition strategies, processing pipelines, viewing software and web publication tools, referring to characteristic examples and applications. During the practical part, participants will get hands-on experience by performing highlight data capture, processing, viewing and online publication. Participants can RTI visualise objects of their choice.
