BrowsIt, Viewer & ReposIt

 

What is the 3D-SYSTEK – BrowsIt?

3D-SYSTEK BrowsIt is a Web application for browsing and annotating cultural objects on the 3D-SYSTEK Repository Infrastructure (RI). It provides a user-friendly visual interface that basically enables the user to perform the following three functions: (1) query formulation, (2) results presentation, and navigation and (3) annotation over the objects.

What is the 3D-SYSTEK – Viewer?

3D-SYSTEK viewer is a new Web based LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) 3D point cloud viewer addressing mobility and portability issues arising from remote field applications by numerous multidisciplinary collaborative scientists. This viewer is available through 3D-SYSTEK BrowsIt interface.

One key feature of 3DSYSTEK viewer apart from displaying color 3D images at various angles and different zooms is the capability to align point clouds to 2D images imported to the 3D point cloud viewer from the external world. This feature finds significant applications in archaeological sites’ modeling, city modeling, 3D model projections to existing 2D maps and features extraction.

What is the ReposIt? (Current version)

The ReposIt provides a user-friendly visual interface for ingestion of data-acquisition and processing events. Data entry is supported with auto-suggestion editing capabilities based on auto-queying specific categories such as things, persons, places, etc. After editing a consistent set of rdf files is produced and can be ingested in RI, along with the data. The ReposIt uses RI queries to fill the dropdown boxes in the metadata forms. This guarantees the validity of the URI/UUID when referring, e.g., to objects/persons/events that are already present in the RI.
