The 3D – COFORM (Tools and Expertise for 3D Collection Formation) Project was established to advance the state-of-the-art in 3Ddigitisation
and make 3D-documentation available as a practical choice for digital documentation campaigns in the cultural heritage sector. The project has addressed the integration of all stages of the workflow involved in such a campaign and in the subsequent use of digital assets in research and dissemination to the public and professional alike. A typical workflow involves planning: 3D-capture; 3D-processing to produce complete models, provenance, and the incorporation of associated metadata; a suitable repository infrastructure for the artefacts, complete with search and browse tools, long-term preservation tools and viewer; analysis and presentation tools; integration with other sources (textual and other media).
