Conference on three-dimensional digital documentation

Digital Documentation Summit

The National Center for Preservation Technology and Training (NCPTT)
<URL:> will partner with the Intermountain
Regional Office of the National Park Service (NPS) and the Presidio
Trust to host a three day summit on 3D digital documentation for
cultural heritage.

The purpose of this summit is to advance the use and understanding
of the various methods of 3D digital documentation of cultural
heritage. In addition, the summit aims to address issues with the
long-term storage and management of the data generated by 3D digital
documentation. Also, the NPS hopes to start discussions on and
establish goals for their use of 3D digital documentation for
architectural heritage.

The Summit will include two days of lectures organized into themed
sessions. Presenters will be allotted 25 minutes with an additional
5 minutes for questions. Also, during the first two days, a poster
session will be held to highlight new, upcoming, and student
research in 3D digital documentation. The Summit's third day will
include hands-on sessions in the morning. These sessions will take
place at the Presidio and be led by various companies and firms who
develop and practice 3D digital documentation. The second half of
the third day will focus on policies for adopting digital
documentation within the NPS and beyond.

This Summit will include sessions on topics such as Data
Acquisition, Data Management, and Data Applications.  A call for
papers will go out suggesting each of these as topics for
presentations. For details on the call for presentations and posters
