Virtual Hampson Museum Project


The Virtual Hampson Museum located at 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 dataset, a decimated mesh dataset, images, and appropriate metadata for each artifact.
