Moobels & Visual Dimension present 2/3D documentation strategy at the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam.

For the 2D + 3D Photography conference at the Rijksmuseum, held on the 15th & 16th April 2015, we cooperated in a workshop together with Daniel Pletinckx from Visual Dimension to present a “Strategy for optimal documentation of museum objects”.

The proposed workflow aims at providing museums and historical and fine art photography professionals a cost effective and simple way to implement a process in which they can document objects in a workflow that is close to photographic principles but on the same hand offers a bridge towards 3D documentation.

The basis of the workflow focuses on three steps, namely:

  1. Capture high resolution 360-photos to create 360 image based view
  2. Create a “simplified” 3D-model through photogrammetry based on the 360 photogrammetry
  3. Create highly detailed and optimized 3D-models based on the 2 previous steps

As you can imagine, there’s actually quite a bit more to it than this 🙂 More information on the workflow can be found in the presentation presented by Daniel Pletinckx, or by contacting us at our offices in Amsterdam (links below).
