Abstract

In this paper, we propose a multi-resolution display method for digital archives of cultural properties using polygon reconstruction. When digital archives of cultural properties are displayed in VR systems for research purpose, mesh resolution had to be changeable on the demand of user. Additionally, for user’s comfortability, polygon reconstruction needs to be executed in real-time. History of preliminary polygon reductions is adopted for the proposed method so that polygon reconstruction is executed in real-time. To validate the VR system using the polygon reconstruction based multi-resolution display method, some experiments are performed. As the result of the experiments, the proposed method is performed within 1.0 second, which is considered as ”real-time” by the definition of typical user-interface.
