Utilizing photogrammetry to model collection objects provides unique ways to access three dimensional objects in a museum collection.
The Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA) in collaboration with the Indiana University Virtual World Heritage Laboratory (VWHL) is utilizing these techniques to provide visitors with new ways of experiencing artworks online. Utilizing best practices in photogrammetry and learning proper workflows is essential to creating a successful 3d model.
This session will detail these best practices, highlighting imaging techniques, processing software, and how to integrate the finished product into museum systems.The outcome of these processes is a 3d model that can offer new ways of experiencing objects in digital form. Using examples from the IMA and other works done by VWHL we will look at how 3d models can be utilized in museums. From online collections to in-gallery interactives these models have many uses that can take your collection to the next level.
