Project Title 

Integrated management, visualisation and enrichment of image and analytical data to improve our understanding and conservation of museum artefacts

Background & Summary of Project

Spectral and 3D imaging techniques are used as non-destructive and portable tools to record the condition, inform the care, and increase the understanding of objects. This research will investigate an integrated approach to spectral and 3D imaging for improved monitoring of cultural heritage objects. The research aims to acquire integrated image data, increase the reproducibility and comparability, and visualise the integrated data for interpretation, hence enhance monitoring.
