Next Age of Discovery

ET In a 21st-century version of the age of discovery, teams of computer scientists, conservationists and scholars are fanning out across the globe in a race to digitize crumbling literary treasures. In the process, they're uncovering unexpected troves of new finds, including never-before-seen versions of the Christian Gospels, fragments of Greek poetry and commentaries on Aristotle. Improved technology is allowing researchers to scan ancient texts that were once unreadable -- blackened in fires or by chemical erosion, painted over or simply too fragile to unroll.

How Open Source Software Can Improve the Library -

Your school had one, and that's probably where you spent most of your library time. If it wasn't your school, then it was probably your local town or city library. Some of these libraries may have been tiny little holes in the wall with just a few thousand books while others were huge university libraries with 10,000 of books, magazines, newspapers, cd, microfiche, and more.

Infrared cleaning is a technique used by some film scanners and flatbed scanners to reduce or remove the effect of dust and scratches upon the finished scan. It works by collecting an additional infrared channel from the scan at the same position and resolution as the three visible color channels (red, green, and blue). The infrared channel, in combination with the other channels, is used to detect the location of scratches and dust.

Once located, those defects can be corrected by scaling or replaced by inpainting. Method[edit] The three color dyes in typical color film emulsions are largely transparent to infrared light, so the infrared image is almost uniformly clear, unlike the RGB images.[1] On the other hand, dust and scratches absorb in the infrared.[2] Any dust spots or scratches appear as dark marks in the infrared, making them easy to find and compensate for. If most or all of a pixel is occluded, scaling is not feasible. Infrared scanning[edit] History[edit] References[edit]
