The University of Wyoming Libraries is bringing in three experts from Cultural Heritage Imaging (CHI) to speak about photogrammetry Monday, May 20.

The event, which is free and open to the public, is set for 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. in Room 506 of Coe Library. A 15-minute break will take place at 11:20 a.m. No registration is required. Light refreshments will be provided.

Photogrammetry combines art and science -- it takes measurements from photographs and creates maps, drawings, measurements or 3-D models.

“We’re really excited to bring this program in,” says Chad Hutchens, head of Digital Collections at UW Libraries. “Photogrammetry is a relatively easy, affordable and accessible way to build three-dimensional models of just about anything with the use of a camera and relatively simple software. While UW Libraries employs this technology, we also want to empower others to use this technology to document and preserve their own items, as well as have fun with 3-D modeling, whatever their goals may be.”

CHI’s mission is to “drive development and adoption of practical digital imaging and preservation solutions for people passionate about saving humanity’s treasures today, before they are lost.” For more information about CHI, visit www.culturalheritageimaging.org.

For more information about the May 20 program, call Hutchens at (307) 766-5560 or email chutchen@uwyo.edu.
