Special Topics in Cultural Heritage Conservation (3 graduate credit hours)
Special Topics in Cultural Heritage Conservation provides students—who come from an array of different disciplines—the opportunity to participate in a special topic of study, or to undertake an internship. This year’s Special Topics course will focus on the role of emerging technologies, specifically laser scanning and 3D imaging as a documentary and management tool.
The goal of the three week long program is to provide participants with a working knowledge of photogrammetry and 3D laser scanning including the equipment, field work planning and techniques, processing, and products. Upon completion, participants will be able to describe the advantages and disadvantages of each technique, understand their applications, and define and articulate goals when designing a 3D scanning or photogrammetry documentation project. (Those participating in the three-week field school will complete a 3D laser scanning project.
Registration includes 3 credit hours of graduate coursework and accommodations. Participants are responsible for travel to and from Nantucket and meals. During the first and second week, participants will participate in a professional workshop on laser scanning and 3D imaging, conducted in partnership with the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training with expert instructors from the Bureau of Land Management and Historic American Building Survey.
