Exploring the 3D-ICONS Project: From Capture to Delivery

The 3D-ICONS project aims to digitise a series of architectural and archaeological masterpieces of world and European cultural significance and provide 3D models and related digital content to Europeana, contributing to the critical mass of highly engaging content available to users. The digital content includes overall 3D models and reconstructions, enlarged models of important details, images, texts, videos. It also includes and re-contextualizes in 3D, objects belonging to a monument but presently located elsewhere. This workshop explores the digitisation pipeline; a fundamental component 3D-ICONS project. This pipeline exploits and integrates existing tools and methods. The workshop will be divided into 5 sessions which follow the pipeline process sequentially.
