Abstract

Hot Topics Panel: Advances in 3D Image Applications

The use of 3D images as information bearing objects is rapidly becoming part of the next generation web. 3D image applications range from scientific investigations to virtual museum exhibits. The cost of capture is decreasing as the cost of preservation and support of these data sets increase. Many aspects of 3D image datasets make them unique and present new problems in how to describe, organize, preserve and retrieve the objects. This panel will bring the latest advances in how to deal with these objects. From the software engineers that create applications, to designers of virtual 3D environments, to museum curators, to an in depth look at metadata standards for describing the objects, this promises to be a lively discussion and debate of an emerging technology.
