Description

From the museum website (accessed 2019-09-03):

Since 2009, The Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology at UCL, in collaboration with UCL's Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering and business partner Arius 3D, has been developing a groundbreaking programme for creating 3D images of objects in the Petrie collection. The aims of the projects are:

  • To develop a viable workflow for the production of high quality 3D models of museum objects, in particular using colour laser scanning.
  • To develop a range of digital 3D applications that will engage audiences.
  • To undertake audience evaluations of the 3D models and applications to better understand the potential of 3D in cultural heritage.
