Shaping Europe’s digital future

Study on quality in 3D digitisation of tangible cultural heritage

The exceptional results of the study on Quality in 3D Digitisation of Tangible Cultural Heritage in which the Time Machine Organisation participated have been published by the European Commission as an official document of the European Union.

This unique study on 3D digitisation provides exceptional results. It demonstrates that complexity and quality are fundamental considerations in determining the necessary effort for a 3D digitisation project to achieve the required value of the output.

The study led by Cyprus University of Technology has identified all relevant elements for successful 3D digitisation of cultural heritage, classifying them by degree of complexity and purpose or use. The study also looked at what determines the quality of a 3D digitisation project and made an inventory of existing formats, standards, guidelines and methodologies used by the industry. This study (Executive summary in French) also collected a number of projects and success stories serving as benchmarks for 3D digitisation of tangible cultural heritage.
