Digital Works, Publications & Work in Progress

Digital Works

Interactive RTI Renderings. Enhanced specular views of sixteen pages of the St Chad Gospels, providing interactive lighting adjustment and magnification (October 2014). See "Labor of Love: UK Professor Continues Work to Digitize 1,300-Year-Old St Chad Gosples" by Heather Chapman.

Scanning of Color Slides (1956) for St Chad Gospels. Digitized twenty-seven color slides, aligned them with other historical images, and added nine of them to Historical Images Overlay on the Manuscripts of Lichfield Cathedral website. These slides provide rare information about the state of the pigment prior to the 1962 flattening of pages and rebinding of the St Chad Gospels (September 2014).

Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI). Captured dry-point glosses and condition of pigments in the 8th-century St Chad Gospels (Lichfield, England); text and marginalia in a collection of 15th-century manuscripts at the National Library of Wales; and early Christian stone carvings in Ireland. Responsible for all aspects of the RTI, from the photography to final processing of images and RTI fiels. (July-August 2014). See "University of Kentucky Scholar Hopes to Uncover New Clues about Origin of 8th-Century Gospels" by Linda B. Blackford.

Registration & Overlay of Historical Images. Provides images taken over the last 125 years for nine of the pages of the St Chad Gospels, beginning with images from 1887. Changes can be observed by overlying any two images for a page and adjusting the top image's transparency with the viewer's slidebar. you can observe how a page of the St Chad Gospels is aging. D-Lib Magazine (May/June 2014) invited me to write a short piece about the Historical Image Overlays for their In BriefHistorical Image Overlays - (January 2014).

Multispectral Visualizations. Thirty-two multispectral visualizations, offering enhanced viewing of a possibly erased area on page 141. Page 141 has intrigued scholars for years. It contains the oldest surviving Old Welsh writing. If this is an erasure, any recovered text might provide significant information about the early years of the St Chad Gospels in Wales. Multispectral visualizations generate a single image from a set of images taken using different bands of light. The images are ordered by wavelength and values calculated across the images for each pixel. Using various formulas for different visualizations, variances are calculated and assigned to each pixel and a single image generated. a colormap is applied to enhance ocular contrast, providing a rather dramatic flare. (October 2013).

Interactive 3D Renderings. WebGL-based renderings for sixteen pages of the St Chad Gospels, including Chi-Rho, portrait pages, incipits, and cross-carpet page. Renderings are high resolution and include features such as rotating a rendering around any point on a page; making annotations; measuring any feature; and generating a URL for any position into which a page is rotated (May 2013).

Manuscripts of Lichfield Cathedral. Digital online version of RGB & multispectral images of Lichfield Cathedral's St Chad Gospels and Wycliffe New Testament. Includes first-of-its-kind viewer that allows the overlay of any two images taken for a page, from RGB to ultrviolet to infrared, with a slidebar to adjust transparency of the top image (Aug 2012).

Repository: St Chad Gospels (8c) - CC Images (University of Kentucky). Digital repository through the Open Science Framework (OSF). Includes downloadable RGB and multispectral images singularly or as compressed groups of files. For example, all pages can be downloaded in one file for full-sized RGB imaged or as medium-sized RGB images. The repository includes for download four pages of Boethius bound into the back of the manuscript, digital recoveries for nine pages, and 3D models. (Aug 2021).

Multispectral imaging of the St Chad Gospels and Lichfield Cathedral's Wycliffe New Testament, Lichfield, England. Led digitizing efforts, including working out contract; verifying all key photographic decisions; and oversaw and completed final processing. Furthermore, because ultraviolet light damages vellum, during the digitization, I worked with the conservator and presented scholarly reasons for ultraviolet imaging of pages—when the manuscript was open and we could discuss a page's merits. (June 2010). See The Chronicle of Higher Education (5 Dec 2010). See 21st Century Imaging Helps Scholars Reveal Rare 8th-Century Manuscript by Jennifer Howard.
