Geological Museum of the Polish Geological Institute stores and exposes the full range of scientific materials. In its collection are numerous specimens of minerals and fossils such as skeletons of extinct animals from the ice age and reconstructions of dinosaurs.
The value of museum collections are priceless. At the same time, the number of items exceeds the capabilities of exhibiting them. The solution to this problem is archiving collections and then exhibiting them in a virtual museum.
Our partner uses a 3D scanner to create three-dimensional models of creatures extinct millions of years ago. Precise mapping of shapes, textures and colours allows them to create virtual exhibits available to visitors from all around the world through the museum website.
A high precision eviXscan 3D Loupe+ scanner ensures precise reproduction of the original model. This virtual copy is then used by researchers around the world in a comparative analysis with models in their collections.
