Keats Webb PhD research into heritage science topics with the centre for doctoral training SEAHA recently presented at imaging conference. Webb presented research on modifying a digital camera for 2D and 3D spectral imaging of cultural heritage documentation.

Keats Webb presents paper on using digital camera for heritage imaging

SEAHA student Keats Webb recently presented the paper ‘Spectral and 3D Cultural Heritage Documentation using a Modified Camera‘  at the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing.

Webb’s paper presented the characterisation of a modified digital camera to investigate the impact of the modification on the spectroradiometric and geometric image quality with the intention of the device being used for cultural heritage documentation. This modification of a consumer digital camera would provide a less expensive, high resolution option for 2D & 3D spectral imaging.

Keats Webb is a SEAHA student based at the University of Brighton. Supported by the Smithsonian Museum Conservation Institute and Analytik Ltd, her project explores integrated approach to spectral and 3D imaging for improved monitoring of cultural heritage objects.
