Publication Detail
3D Scanning of the Science Museum's Shipping Gallery
The (London) Science Museum's Shipping Gallery, largely unchanged since installation in the 1960s, was a vast space with hundreds of ship models and large pieces of historical maritime equipment. When the gallery was decommissioned in 2012 the museum, in a combined project with UCL and Scanlab, created a 3D record of the exhibition. The resulting model documents and preserves the gallery, allowing users to experience the virtual exhibition long after the physical space was dismantled. The gallery was first surveyed, then scanned over five nights. 275 scans were captured by two FARO Photon 120 terrestrial laser scanners. The resulting 256 GB dataset contained two billion colored points measured to sub-millimeter accuracy. This presentation will demonstrate the model and some planned outputs, as well as discussing issues of feasibility, user experience, and the potential benefits of large-scale 3D capture of museum spaces. This project was supported by UCL's VEIV EngD Centre.
