The SCULPTEUR R&D Project
3D objects are retrieved from the database thanks to 3D object retrieval algorithms developed during the SCULPTEUR project exploiting the features extracted from the 2D image sequences and the geometry and the texture of the 3D models.
Within the project, a semantic layer (ontology) and associated tools have been also implemented. Multimedia objects and objects derived from them will be associated with concepts in this semantic layer. Innovative tools for enhancing browsing, retrieval and navigation through the use of integrated content and concept based queries. We have developed a prototype software, generally referred to as the "Concept Browser" within the project, that allows users to access the information from the museum partners collaborating in the project structured through a common ontology, the CIDOC CRM.
