For the photogrammetry workshop: Photogrammetry is a type of computational photography that is used to create three-dimensional models of objects. Photogrammetry is an incredibly useful technique that produces highly accurate models using standard DSLR cameras, scales, and powerful advanced software (for archival purposes, Agisoft Photoscan Pro is recommended, but there are many other more freely software options such as SketchUp or Blender). Once created, these models can be exported as movie files, 3D PDFs, or even 3D printed, which allows the models to be shared widely. At times, photogrammetry models have even been used to re-create objects that have been destroyed, such as the gate at Palmyra, or as a means of archiving objects. Many models from museums are available on sketchfab.com, such as the Rosetta Stone. These models allow viewers to interact with objects, turn them around and even upside down.
