There is a new page on the ARTES website dedicated to 3D models of architecture and objects from the Iberian Peninsula (click here). A page dedicated to 3D models for Latin America is coming soon. Find them under the ‘Online Resources’ tab on the top of the site. These lists are not exhaustive, and will be updated regularly.

Have anything to add to the Iberian list, or ideas for the Latin American list? Please comment on this post with your suggestions (‘leave a reply’).

Do you have photos of the National Museum of Brazil’s collection?

Following the tragic fire at the National Museum in Rio de Janeiro some online platforms have asked the public to help document the museum’s lost collection by sharing images and other digital material.

The open-access image repository Wikimedia Commons has asked its users to contribute images of the museum’s collection. Instruction are below:

3D repository site Sketchfab has also created a collection of 25 models from the Museu Nacional that can be accessed by anyone, and invites users who might have created a 3D or photogrammetric model of the museum’s artefacts to share their work on the site.
