3D-COFORM: Tools and Expertise for 3D Collection Formation

This is a technology or research stand, located in Zone R6 - Content and Knowledge. Stand number: R6-10

3D-COFORM is the ‘tools and expertise for 3D collection formation’ project providing a virtual archive of cultural heritage.

The aim of the 3D-COFORM project is to make 3D digitisation of artefacts and sites a practical and standard way of documenting tangible cultural heritage for the benefit of everyone. This exhibit presents 3D-COFORM research results. It will engage visitors with a variety of options, selected for their visual impact, interactivity and engagement levels. Visitors can choose between video, printed material, hardware and software demos. These highly interactive demos will show visitors the potential of 3D technologies, and how the techniques could bring benefits to the heritage sector. Visitors can use the demos themselves with support from the project team members, who will also be available to provide more information on the state of the art of the technology and its use.
