Working on the Visionary Cross project never ceases to amaze and provide more learning opportunities for me and at the same time testing the limits for systems designed and made available to research community. If last year was dedicated to figuring it out as to how data and research outputs will be disseminated so that […]
Last Friday, we had a meeting with Marco about the work done so far and the future work of mapping the point from one to another. Three important questions which need to be answered are: How to find the point of interest? How to duplicate the view? How to map the point from one to […]
Thanks to the people who have been working on Unreal Engine, we got the cross model and created a very basic scene using the 3rd person template in Unreal. Users can rotate the scene by keyboard and mouse inputs, which would change the angle and the distance from which the users are looking at, in order to see other sides […]
You can access the test viewer at the following URL: http://vcg.isti.cnr.it/cross/ About the test We are using this test to gain initial feedback on usability and use cases for the viewer including corrections, and advice for further development, treatment and discussion of potential uses. As a result we are particularly interested in: Suggestions for improvement […]
The Visionary Cross project is preparing a launch of a beta version of its Ruthwell Cross viewer. This is a web-based 3D facsimile of the Ruthwell Cross with annotations suitable for students and the general public. It should be of interest to students, online members of the general public, and professional art historians, linguists, historians, […]
A brief project update. Now that we are starting to get our data in usable shape, we hope to report more regularly here about what we are doing.
Had a quick visit to Pisa yesterday and today to discuss aspects of the project with Roberto Rosselli Del Turco and to see the latest results and discuss future directions with Marco Callieri and Matteo Dellepiane. One nice result is some early screenshots of the nearly-completed meshes.

The cross was pulled down and broken in the seventeenth century and partially reconstructed in the nineteenth. It is now located in a small apse on the north side […]
