3D INDOOR DOCUMENTATION OF THE WINTER GARDEN IN THE EARTHENWARE MUSEUM AT SARREGUEMINES (FRANCE)
This paper presents the work accomplished in order to digitize and model the Winter Garden of the Earthenware Museum at Sarreguemines (Moselle, France). The objectives were to create a digital archive of this cultural heritage place and to find appropriate ways of promoting it. Topographic, photogrammetric and lasergrammetric methods were used to model the Winter Garden. Different virtual reality tools enabled us to spotlight some of its parts and to offer an immersive visualization. Several challenges had to be taken up during this project. We first had to find out the best processing workflow to model earthenware, which is a highly reflecting material. Image processing was also needed for aesthetic reasons and we finally had to find methods to reduce the size of the models.
