Abstract

Spectral imaging has been proved as a promising technology to perform scientific documentation and analysis of cultural heritage objects. Imaging systems used for this purpose varies in different forms and complexity. Most of the spectral devices are designed not specifically for cultural heritage imaging, but for other application domains like remote sensing, satellite imaging etc. While these imaging systems used for cultural heritage scanning, the same processing workflow may not be adequate to meet the required image quality. In this paper, we investigate one of the several quality parameters, geometrical distortions in a spectral image caused by the translation stage of the camera. For this study, we used a hyperspectral image dataset derived from a pushbroom hyperspectral imaging system attached in a rotational translator. Using geometrical model, we have estimated the distortion, which is function of the scanning angle and distance. Image correction has been proposed and tested over a number of images acquired at the laboratory and in a museum environment.
