The intent of this research is to test the effectiveness of photogrammetry and 3D scanning technology for the purpose of digital cultural and historical preservation. The case studies presented are of two historic pots, a lithic, a bitumen sample, a shipwreck, and an historic windmill. This research proves that 3D models for digital perseveration can be created through data acquisition, image processing, and the use of different software. Each study shown provides an example of how photogrammetry software can further efforts in historical and cultural preservation, as well as research in the archaeological field.
