All data have been collected with the Shape-grabber 3D laser scanner in Brown Shape Lab. There are two datasets, bones and sherds. The pixel size is 1 mm. Bones and Petra sherds were scanned by Yan Cao in 2002 and 2001, Modern pot sherds were scanned by Donjin Han in 2001. Sherds data conversion was done by Yan Cao, Andrew Willis and Xavier Orriols.
This dataset contains data for 4 bones. .iv files are the data in OpenInventor format. .mat files are Matlab data files, which contain unorganized 3D points D and their corresponding normals N. There is also a JPEG image file for each bone.Download the database here (36 MB)
This dataset contains data for sherds. There are two subset.
1. Petra This dataset contains data for 6 sherds from Petra, Jordan (P1135, P1313, P642,P654, P967, P997) and two sherds from a modern pot (P9, P11). .mat files are Matlab data files, which contain unorganized 3D points Dnew and their corresponding normals Nnew. The data points has been transformed so that the Z-axis is roughly the revolution axis of each sherd. There are also a JPEG image file for each sherd.
2. Modern Pot This dataset contains data for 12 sherds from a same broken modern pot and the whole pot. All files are in .mat format, Matlab data files, which contain unorganized 3D points D and their corresponding normals N.Download the database here (16 MB)
