Web3D Consortium Cultural Heritage Working Group

Proposed Charter Scope

Web3D Cultural Heritage

Millions of cultural heritage artifacts populate our museums and about 90% still await discovery in museum archives. The 3D Documentation of cultural heritage artifacts represents a huge market potential which is largely unexplored. This workshop will launch the Charter for a new Web3D Consortium Working Group on Cultural Heritage addressing:

  • Arbitrary availability and concurrent access to digital surrogates of cultural heritage artifacts for art historians and scientists.
  • Use of digital surrogates in cultural heritage institutions for exhibition planning, documentation and acquisition planning.
  • Virtual presentation (combined with new forms of presentation technologies, such as hybrid exhibitions) as a means to increase attractiveness • Physical surrogates based on digital 3D models.
  • Substitute loaning of cultural heritage artifacts by digital surrogates avoiding damage from transport, insurance fees and legal issues.
  • Reusability of historically correct 3D models in gaming and film industry as well as for architectural reconstruction.


Web3D 2015 Conference

To be held in Heraklion, Crete in June 2015!
