Project description

Methodically, the cipher devices will be CT-scanned. In addition, two major devices of the collection are processed in detail to provide the basis for presentations, visualisations and exemplary animations of the CT scans.

All data obtained from the project will finally be made available to research and the public as Open Data via Deutsches Museum Digital . The transparency of all work processes will help to make future CT projects in the museum sector more efficient. Intermediate steps and results of this project will be published in lectures and publications during the project runtime.
