This workshop goes over the different forms of digitizing analog objects, from books to artifacts. Using open-source tools, we will cover the different types of image processing including rasterization, optical character recognition (OCR), photogrammetry and 3D modeling. This workshop was developed for the digital humanities, but it is also useful for librarians, art historians and those interested in digital archival curation.
