Abstract

In these last years, there has been an increasing use of the Structure from Motion (SfM) techniques applied to Cultural Heritage. Theaccessibility of SfM software can be especially advantageous to users in non-technical fields or to those with limited resources.Thanks to SfM using, everyone can make with a digital camera a 3D model applied to an object of both Cultural Heritage, andphysically Environment, and work arts, etc. One very interesting and useful application can be envisioned into museum collectiondigitalization.In the last years, a social experiment has been conducted involving young generation to live a social museum using their own camerato take pictures and videos. Students of university of Catania and Palermo were involved into a national event #digitalinvasion(2015-2016 editions) offering their personal contribution: they realized 3D models of the museums collection through the SfMtechniques. In particular at the National Archaeological Museum Salinas in Palermo, it has been conducted an organized survey torecognize the most important part of the archaeological collection. It was a success: in both #digitalinvasion National Event 2015and 2016 the young students of Engineering classes carried out, with Photoscan Agisoft, more than one hundred 3D models some ofwhich realized by phone camera and some other by reflex camera and some other with compact camera too. The director of themuseum has been very impressed from these results and now we are going to collaborate at a National project to use the younggeneration crowdsourcing to realize a semi-automated monitoring system at Salinas Archaeological Museum.
