Visit our 3D scanning of cultural collections page to learn more of our latest project and the latest in scanning technology at its best!
Over several years, Macquarie University has developed and led the use of 3D imaging technology for learning and teaching, research and museum needs. Macquarie University now have a range of 3D imaging technology and software including laser scanners, structured light scanners, cameras and photogrammetry setups to enable digitisation of almost anything in 3D. They also developed the Pedestal 3D platform for learning and teaching that is now a leading platform in higher education and museums. Council uses this platform to display 3D images on this website.
The pilot project was a collaboration between the Parramatta Heritage and Visitor Information Centre and Council’s Future City program, using emerging technology to promote and preserve items from the Council’s collections and three heritage partners across the City.
