Yale University (New Haven, CT 06510-1703)
Nelson Rios (Project Director: January 2019 to present)
Development of a Multi-Camera, Computer Operated Photogrammetric Imaging System for Enhancing Digital Preservation and Access

The further development and refinement of a system to carry out photogrammetric 3D reconstruction quickly, inexpensively, and without the need for specialized equipment.

This project will document, validate and improve upon a high-throughput multi-camera, Computer-Operated Photogrammetric Imaging System (COPIS) for capturing large numbers of overlapping images from multiple viewpoints around an object for photogrammetric 3D reconstruction. This will be accomplished through a demonstration project to image and reconstruct 3D models of approximately 1,000 cultural heritage objects selected from a broad sampling of the Yale Peabody Museum’s Anthropological and Babylonian collections. This project will further evolve the COPIS design specification for photogrammetry, improve usability and performance of the software components, add a preliminary design element to facilitate structured-light scanning and deploy an installation at the Museum to produce high-resolution 3D reconstructions of diverse sets of objects from its Anthropology and Babylonian collections.
