Developing a 3D digital heritage ecosystem: from object to representation and the role of a virtual museum in the 21st century (2011)
This article addresses the application of high precision 3D recordation methods to heritage materials (portable objects), the technical processes involved, the various digital products and the role of 3D recordation in larger questions of scholarship and public interpretation. It argues that the acquisition and creation of digital representations of heritage must be part of a comprehensive research infrastructure (a digital ecosystem) that focuses on all of the elements involved -- including...
This project pertains to the compositional analysis of ceramic materials from Egypt. These data were generated by neutron activation analysis (NAA) at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) between the late 1960s and early 1990s. Data from the LBNL were transferred to the Archaeometry Laboratory at the University of Missouri, where they were digitized for distribution through tDAR.
These images show the individual sherds from Tell el Amarna analyzed by neutron activation at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). Photographs were taken at LBNL and scanned by the Archaeometry Laboratory at MURR. Individual files were named according to the official catalog numbers of each image assigned by the Graphic Arts Department at LBNL.
The Virtual Hampson Museum located at http://hampson.cast.uark.edu/ showcases a series of 3D digital artifacts from the collections at the Hampson Archeological Museum State Park. All artifacts were scanned in full color with the Konica Minolta VIVID 9i laser scanner. One hundred forty of these artifacts are archived with tDAR. In compliance with the ADS Guide to Good Practice for Laser Scanning document, the archive includes raw scan files, a registered dataset, a premesh dataset, a mesh...
