A 3D model of ancient Rome.

Europeana Network to review 3D content for the website

The Europeana Network has set up a taskforce for reviewing the possibilities for the cultural heritage sector with the use of 3D technology.

3D technology provides innovative ways to provide access to heritage for education, tourism, research and enjoyment. The creation of 3D models of monuments, buildings and objects has become widespread for research, conservation and management. Thus, the technology has become a major asset for the sector, but it also raises a challenge: how to put the technology to the best use given the fast advancements and changes in technology.
