3D digitalisation of natural and cultural objects

The collection of the State Museum Nature and Man Oldenburg includes objects from natural history, archaeology and ethnology. Only a small proportion of the objects has been digitally acquired and made virtually accessible so far. Digitalisation (3D) poses major challenges for museums. The Modi project aims to examine how digital archiving and visualisation tools can promote the preservation and presentation of sensitive cultural heritage objects in several case studies. For this purpose, different disciplines (archaeology, photogrammetry and cultural studies) are combined. The IAPG is responsible for the development and evaluation of optical 3D measurement methods to digitise the fragile and highly complex free-form surfaces of the cultural objects. Based on the results the project partner, State Museum Nature and Man Oldenburg, can extract new archaeological conclusion from the modern 3D data. The cultural studies aims to answer the question of how the resulting models can be imbued with authentic value and can, therefore, be experienced as significant cultural heritage in their own right.
