Item description for Virtual Anthropology: A guide to a new interdisciplinary field by Gerhard W. Weber & Fred L. Bookstein...
This first textbook for "Virtual Anthropology", a new branch of science that combines elements from such different fields as anthropology, radiology, forensics, mathematics, and computer science, is intended to be used by all kinds of students from biological to medical and technical fields as well as by teachers, journalists, and interested laymen. The content spans from an introduction into the discipline over medical imaging and digitising techniques, the analysis and reconstruction of morphology based on spatial geometry of biological objects, to many examples of real applications and future perspectives for researchers. Readers are not stressed with a flood of technical details but rather introduced step by step into the methods of operation to particularly understand their relevance for research and society. Readers are likewise encouraged to have a go on their own using the enclosed DVD that contains instructive exercises, answers, links to free software, and 2D and 3D data to make the first steps.
