Digital Curation

We specialize in precision photography of artifacts, products and objects (large and small).

Whether it’s a collection for a museum, university, government agency, company or private owner, FDI captures detailed images that can be easily transferred to a searchable database or inventory for insurance purposes.

We take extreme care to carefully document each item with extraordinary detail while using a precisely placed scale/ruler for accurate measurement and photogrammetry.  FDI documents collections on-site, in-studio, or if you prefer, we will train your staff.

FDI adheres to best practices in the digital curation of collections and the digital documentation of projects.

The Results

The images in the slideshow above were not enhanced by any type of computer software. These precision images were taken by numerous individuals from six different camera stations at three different locations. None of these individuals had any previous photography experience, except their cell phone camera. All of them received hands-on training from FDI, along with quality control reviews to ensure consistency. FDI designed the capture stations, created the procedures, trained the technicians, and provided easy to understand operation guides.
