Session Abstract

In Spring 2019, The Getty Center partnered with the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD in Darmstadt, Germany to test their autonomous photogrammetry-based 3D scanning machine, the CultArm3D-P at the Getty Center in Los Angeles. Led by Todd Swanson (Digital Imaging Manager, J. Paul Getty Trust), Getty curators, conservators, and scientists identified art and study objects that were particularly challenging—intricate, tiny, reflective, or with semi-transparent surfaces like glass or plexiglass. Collaborating with Research Technologies at Indiana University, led by Tassie Gniady, high-performance computing (HPC) enabled parallel processing of these very large photogrammetry datasets. The team also built virtual machines and conducted benchmarking in that environment as they sought to develop best practices in the emerging field of 3D digitization.
