Study on quality in 3D digitisation of tangible cultural heritage

The study identified all relevant elements for successful 3D digitisation and made an inventory of existing formats, standards, guidelines and methodologies.


The main objective of the study (VIGIE 2020/654) is to map parameters, formats, standards, benchmarks, methodologies and guidelines which relate to 3D digitisation of tangible cultural heritage, to different potential purposes or uses and to general-purpose visualisation, by type of tangible cultural heritage, whether. immovable or movable, and by degree of complexity. An important goal of the study is to produce a framework that would enable cultural heritage professionals, institutions and other custodians of cultural heritage, providers of 3D digitisation services for cultural heritage and other researchers in 3D digitisation technologies to define and produce high quality in the context of specific 3D digitisation projects for tangible cultural heritage. The study consortium is formed by one tenderer, the Cyprus University of Technology (CUT) and a group of expert subcontractors.
