Deploying 3D technologies for the documentation of tangible cultural heritage
Keywords:3D technologies, Deployment models, Testing
Increasingly, visitors and cultural heritage professionals expect more from 3D technologies. The 3D-COFORM project aims to make 3D technology a practical proposition for use in the cultural heritage sector. While developing state of the art tools targeted to a diverse group of users, the project is also researching on the practical issues for the technologies’ implementation on heritage organisations. This paper describes the methodology to achieve this; as well as different types of testing conducted by the project. Moreover, it proposes three deployment models and describes one of them in more detail. Although, these results are preliminary they are expected to contribute towards the sector considering 3D technologies as a sustainable option.
