A New View of our 3D Scans! (Selden)

We recently added our 3D scans to the ScholarWorks platform. This allows us to share a low-resolution image that is viewable by those using a slow internet connection, and offers a more expedient method of viewing/manipulating the scans.

In ScholarWorks, users can be connected to the metadata through links in the Abstract, as well as a button at the top right (in red below). The stable URL for each vessel–in this case FIN-S18–is listed under the Recommended Citation. You can share this page with friends on Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Email, or click on the plus sign to see a variety of others! And don’t forget to take a look at, rotate, and otherwise manipulate the 3D imagery!

This is the first of many more 3D scans to come–we will be adding the remainder of our 3D collection to the ScholarWorks platform over the coming weeks–and we hope that you take time to enjoy the scans. That said, please venture over to ScholarWorks, and dig in – click on the underlined text below to take a look.
