Digitizing the Dodo: Three-Dimensional Digitization for Research and Public Outreach at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History

Museums at Noon presentation by Taylor West
Friday, December 2, 2022
12:00-1:00 PM
The Oxford University Museum of Natural History began a large redisplay project in April of this year, with the goal of developing and installing 20 new permanent exhibits in the main court of the Museum. I traveled to Oxford University for my UM Museum Studies practicum to digitize these new displays using structured light scanning technology to create interactive, 3-D models of the objects located within the new exhibits. This project aims to improve both public access to the OUMNH museum space and also begin a digital collection for researchers at Oxford University and beyond.
