An Introduction to Laser Scanning in the Heritage field
(1 day course)
National Conservation Centre
National Museums Liverpool
Liverpool, UK
Monday 5 March 2007

Following on from the successful first course held in October this
year, we have decided to run the course once again.  Laser scanning
is becoming more widely used within the heritage field. It allows
fast, accurate 3D digitisation of artefacts (from small
archaeological pieces to complete buildings) for a wide range of
applications, including:

    Non-contact replication
    Visualisation for museum displays
    Erosion monitoring
    Virtual restoration

This 1-day course provides an introduction to the use of laser
scanning in the heritage field and comprises a series of lectures,
practical demonstrations, case studies and opportunity for
discussion. It is aimed at all those working within the heritage
field who would like to develop a basic understanding of laser
scanning and its uses, including: museum curators, conservators,
conservation officers, archaeologists, virtual reality providers,
exhibition designers, surveyors and other commissioners of 3D
recording work:

The course content includes:

    A basic introduction to the theory of laser scanning
    Different types of laser scanning systems
    Processing of scan data to produce a finished computer model
    Managing scan data and file formats
    How to specify a laser scanning job
    Practical considerations
    Practical applications of laser scan data, including non-contact

Maximum number of participants: 20
Cost: UKP75 (+vat) (tea/coffee and lunch provided)
