Webinar: Best Methods and Practices for 3D Storage of Museum Objects

15 lokakuun, 2020

Join us to discuss 3D modeling of museum objects. The Traffic Museums Association organizes on Monday October 19, 2020 webinar where we consider why museum objects are being digitized? We also share our experiences with 3D recording. We open the debate as to whether it is worthwhile for museums to record 3D themselves and how much resources it practically requires.

3D imaging of museum objects is about the accessibility, preservation and versatile usability of a unique, fragile and vulnerable cultural heritage, for example for exhibition or research use, and not just for AR applications.

The descriptions of the second Sigyn model used a piano chair with a modified round table and a calm background. The result still did not meet expectations.

High-quality digitization of cultural heritage supports the preservation, restoration and promotion of common cultural heritage. The cultural heritage digitized online is valuable for education, research and enthusiasts, in addition to bringing visibility to cultural diversity. Currently, only about 1% of Europe’s cultural heritage has been digitized.

The 3D learning project for the Traffic Museums Association is the largest joint 3D recording project of Finnish museums, which includes the Postal Museum, Forum Marinum, Päivälehti Museum, Railway Museum, Mobilia and the Museum of Technology.

During the day, we ask participants to comment on questions raised about the presentations. You can also join the conversation with the topic tag #trafiikki3d.
