HearstCAVE 3D Reconstruction
Xingjian Han, Chris Hoffman, Research IT

In this project, we aim to digitalize the collections from the Hearst Museum of Anthropology, by constructing and reproducing the 3D visualization of the exhibits and to store the models in geometric data format. In the process, we adopt photogrammetry to scan and model the exhibits from the museum to make the models reproducible in the digital version. The models are later built in VR application for immersive distant museum experience.
