As part of the Library of Congress's 3D Scanning Working Group, I was the lead UX Designer responsible for establishing criteria in selecting objects for the Library's collection suitable for scanning. I attended a week-long training that resulted in certification of photogrammetry, a process that combines computational photography to build virtual 3D models.
Following the creation of the 3D models, I directed the implementation of an open-source 3D explorer application on the Library's website that displayed the digitized files, making them available for viewing, download, and deeper exploration into the objects' histories. Additionally, I was able to 3D print versions of the models I converted to demonstrate the fidelity of detail and provide a resource to the Library's Teacher's Team that could be used for educational purposes.
