The 3D-ICONS project, which started in February 2012 and lasts for three years, focuses on digital content that includes 3D models and reconstructions, enlarged models of important details and related images, texts and videos. It will also include and re-contextualize in 3D, objects belonging to a monument but presently located elsewhere, for example in museums. The project’s activities will include both new digitisation as well as the conversion of some existing 3D data into formats which are accessible for Europeana users. 3D-ICONS is expected to make a significant impact by making accessible through Europeana an unprecedented quantity of high-quality, 3D, well organized and attractive information about the masterpieces of European architecture and archaeology.
