As our heritage deteriorates through erosion, human error or natural disasters, it has become more important than ever to preserve our past - even if it is in digital form only. This highly relevant work describes thorough research and methods for preserving cultural heritage objects through the use of 3D digital data. These methods were developed via computer vision and computer graphics technologies. They offer a way of passing our heritage down to future generations.
