Hong Kong Maritime Museum to Undertake Large-scale Scanning of its Qing dynasty-era Scroll, Pacifying the South China Sea
7 October 2012 – The Hong Kong Maritime Museum and the Advanced Imaging Technology Laboratory at Kyoto University will conduct a high-resolution scanning of the museum’s Qing scroll, Pacifying the South China Sea. The project will focus on producing a high quality digital image that the museum will be able to use for interactive exhibitions, research and presentations. The scan will be non-destructive and non-invasive. While rare, this type of scanning is becoming a common practice for world heritage artefacts such as the museum’s scroll.
