Sustainable Archaeology Animation Unit Creates Digital Archives of Archaeological Collections using 3D Scanning
Sustainable Archaeology, and its Sustainable Archaeology Animation Unit (SAAU), has taken innovative steps to make Ontario’s archaeological records accessible to researchers, students, and the public without stepping into a museum or storage facility. Sustainable Archaeology had contacted 3D3 Solutions to propose 3D scanning solutions that would allow for the digitization of large archaeological collections quickly and accurately. The system had to be able to handle large volumes of artifacts that range in different shapes and sizes, as well as encapsulate the true likeness of the artifacts with high resolution color and texture capture.
