World's First Automated 3D Digitization of Cultural Treasures

Millions of cultural artifacts exist in our museums. But are these cultural treasures safe there? In the fire at the Duchess Anna Amalia library in Weimar in the year 2004 or when the historical city archive in Cologne collapsed in 2009, numerous works of art were completely destroyed. Preserving our cultural heritage in a digital way is a good possibility of mitigating the impact of such disasters. For around ten years, private, national and international initiatives have been trying to digitally capture and archive cultural treasures. However, these have mainly been limited to 2D artifacts such as book pages, paintings or photographs.
