Rapid advances in the fields of digital photography and digital image processing have provided an array of new methods of extracting information from historical buildings and artefacts. Until now, the techniques, and how and when to use them have remained a mystery to many conservators and museum professionals. Digital Heritage explains these techniques, and how to get the best results from them in a variety of applications. Focusing on historic buildings, digitisation of documents, paintings and objects in museums and galleries, the book brings together international experts in the fields of conservation and digital imaging to demonstrate how these two disciplines can work together to achieve excellent results.
