Cultural Heritage Imaging (CHI) promotes the growth and acceptance of technologies for digital capture and documentation of the world’s scientific, cultural and artistic treasures. We do this by working together with experts from around the world in cultural preservation, natural history collections, computer imaging science, museum/library science, and data archiving.
If you want more thorough information, including examples and documentation, follow the information below.
Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI): A get through class of imaging methods used in cultural heritage and natural history documentation and preservation, allowing the study of the minute details of surfaces.
Algorithmic Rendering (AR): An applied mathematical technique employed to create scientifically reliable illustrations of cultural heritage and natural history subjects.
Photogrammetry: The practice of deciding mathematical measurements and three-dimensional (3D) geometry data from two or more photographic images of the same subject.
Digital Lab Notebook: a CHI term that explains the digital process history record of the means and situation used to produce a digital representation (digital surrogate) of an empirically captured subject in the physical world.
