In the research area Visual Computing in the Humanities and Social Sciences, we apply and develop methods from Visual Computing to answer question from humanities and social sciences. A typical example is archaeology, where we digitize ancient artefacts using 3D-reconstruction, analyse them using approaches from geometry processing, and visualize them using virtual reality.
