About the 3D Petrie project
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.
