NOESIS: Development of a Novel and Integrated Portable Non-Destructive Analysis System for the Docum

The project is designed to produce non-destructive non-invasive image-based processing techniques to aid the historical analysis and examination of five significant Mediterranean collections of manuscripts (hosted by libraries and museums in Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Cyprus, and Israel). Digital images from the target manuscripts captured in colour visible, ultraviolet and monochrome infrared will be used to derive computational profiles of the ink and support (paper, papyrus, etc) used. The profiles will be based on the image properties of the materials exhibited due to either to the physical characteristics of their composition or to there manufacturing process.
