3-Dimensional Computed Tomography Scanning of Musical Instruments

Abstract The Germanische Nationalmuseum (GNM), Nuremberg, together with the Entwicklungszentrum Röntgentechnik (EZRT) of the Fraunhofer Institut für Integrierte Schaltungen, Erlangen, developed recommendations for the three-dimensional computed tomography (3D-CT) of musical instruments in a research project called MUSICES (MUSical Instrument-Computed tomography Examination-Standard). The project, which ran from 2014-2017, was funded by the German research funding association DFG. The project is presented here as a case study, as it makes an important contribution to expanding the documentation of museum objects, which, like musical instruments, are characterized by a great variety of forms, materials, sizes and composition, by adding an additional perspective...

Understanding digitization of cultural heritage objects

Abstract Digitization of cultural heritage objects has a lot of challenges that comes with it, in some aspects such as the dimension to digitize, the meta-data and other parameters. We are investigating different methods here in order to get an overview of some proposed architectures, among them the COSCH system. Keywords Digitalization, acquisition techniques, documentation, ontologies What is important when digitizing or documenting an object? An optimal digitization or documentation would take all required parameters into account, such as: Spatial shape Visual appearance (real color, texture) Surface structure Physico-chemical composition There is a lot of parameters, so what does...
