Web Based Atlas of Laser Scanned Buddhist Stone Inscriptions

This paper describes the innovative architecture of a Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) which combines standardised geospatial OGC Web Services (OWS) with an existing XML document system providing art-historic and text-scientific information. Further a web-based interactive atlas system for analysis and
multimedia presentation in 2D and 3D has been realized as a sustainable solution helping arthistorians and text-scientists to examine Buddhist stone inscriptions in the future. Innovative aspects
comprise in particular the adaptation of the data pre-processing to enable the portrayal of terrestrial
laser scan (TLS) data of relevant sites by a Web 3D Service and furthermore the integration of
standards across different domains, including GIS analysis functions relevant for historians and
archaeologists through several Web Processing Services (WPS). Read More
