Preserving Heritage & Providing Open Access: A New Partnership in Preservation Brings 3D Leaders Together
A new partnership in heritage preservation and open data access has the University of South Florida Libraries working with leaders in the field of 3D digital heritage, bringing increased levels of interaction and availability of resources to the world. As we have seen on recent news and social media, heritage is fragile and susceptible to loss. Preservation strategies are critical in conserving significant and universally important historical monuments, structures, and collections. 3D and digital technologies hold great promise in the safe keeping, archiving, and sharing of these places and objects that matter, but too often information is not readily available or accessible in times of need, such as disaster response. These same data, when available, also provide opportunities for sustainable heritage tourism, education, and engaging interpretation strategies — changing the way we see and learn about the world around us.
