The aim of the project was to provide museum staff and volunteers across NW museums with free and state of the art training in digital 3D recording and presentation, with the eventual goal of constructing virtual and accessible exhibitions. Expertise in photogrammetry and specialist computer infrastructure based in ACE and the Garstang Museum of Archaeology was utilised to provide advice and training to regional museums that would otherwise have been unable to have access to leading edge expertise and such computer equipment.

After the workshops, participants were then supported in creating 3D models of objects in their own collections.
