Digitise



New technologies in digitisation are paving the way for more accurate and visually descriptive preservation of cultural heritage collections. Of these new technologies, NZMS is embracing structured light 3D scanning to capture objects 3-dimensionally, delivering multiple viewpoints and allowing for an increased sense of tangibility – superior to a typical photograph.







At NZMS we see talented people coming up with incredible ideas for projects to inspire, to educate, to entertain their communities. We also see that the tricky part is not coming up with the ideas, or even finding an enthusiastic team with the drive and energy to make them happen, the tricky part is undoubtedly finding funding for the project.



Collections of Cultural Heritage are by no means limited to two-dimensions, our Archives and Museums are filled with three-dimensional objects of cultural and historical significance. As new technology has emerged we now have access to a range of tools for digitising three-dimensional (3D) objects.
