Arts and Culture
Unique artworks, archaeological findings and architectural masterpieces meet top-of-the-range measurement technology
More and more frequently, modern tools such as 3D optical scanners are applied for the digitisation of such cultural objects, for documentation, evaluation and archiving as well as for professional restoration and reconstruction. The data obtained often reveals previously undiscovered details that are difficult to detect in the original. Such methods also enable innovative new ways of organising research work, especially for international project groups.
Non-contact scanning presents a way to protect sensitive, sometimes thousands-of-years old pieces, without missing out on research opportunities. Plus, following the scanning process, the digital representations are available at any time for access online around the world.
To date, several unique and exciting projects in the field of arts and culture have been realised, in some instances resulting in sensational new discoveries. Applying the latest metrology technology to work with historical objects can be of great cultural importance.
