Abstract

Developing best practices for Heritage Imaging encompasses various choices regarding approach, technology, and domain specific knowledge. Over the past few years at UCL, we have been building up our activities and expertise in heritage imaging, working in both 2D and 3D multi-modal imaging of cultural heritage material, with a variety of heritage organisations such as galleries, libraries, archives and museums, in interdisciplinary cross-faculty research teams. In this presentation, we will showcase some of the major work undertaken at UCL over the past 10 years, including E-Curator (http://www.ucl.ac.uk/museums/research/ecurator), the Great Parchment Book, (http://www.greatparchmentbook.org/, http://reality.cs.ucl.ac.uk/projects/gpb/), The Science Museum Shipping Gallery 3D Model (http://www.sciencemuseum.org.uk/about_us/history/shipping.aspx), best practice in multispectral imaging of damaged parchment material, the creation of our UCL Multi-Modal Digitisation Suite for both teaching and research (http://www.ucl.ac.uk/dh/facilities/digitisation-suite), the 3D Petrie project and the development of 2D and 3D imaging reference artefacts. We will highlight issues in both the development and refinement of digital capture methods for heritage applications, but also in understanding their use and usefulness in the heritage sector and beyond.
