Briefly describe your imaging knowledge

List of participants

It is imperative that the project leader (researcher, curatorial manager, doctoral student, master, external, etc.) is the one who carries out the data analysis work and the research work (or the museum exploitation) that results from it. (thus ensuring optimum demand for surface acquisition specificities).

Project leader

Project collaborators

Last name (s), first name (s), affiliation (s) of the collaborator (s) of the project.

Scientific project

The summary may, for selected projects, be posted on the website of the platform and in the dissemination documents produced by the platform.
Details on the interests of surface analysis for your project? Which structures do you want to highlight (area of interest)? What types of post-processing analysis will be used?
Explanations on the broader framework in which the project fits (Master, Thesis, funded research program (ANR, ERC, PICS, etc.), preventive conservation, exhibition, restoration, etc.).

Study material

Details of the material to be analyzed (number and size of specimens *, provide photographs *), if possible estimate of technical requirements (number of scans or any known acquisition parameters, refer to MH-2D/3D). An exhaustive description of the study material is essential to the choice of the best parameters of surface analysis and to the estimation of the time of digitization and the cost of the service. For MNHN specimens, the inventory number is required.

Specimens from MNHN collections

You will not be able to submit your project if the inventory number is wrong or does not exist (please contact the relevant curatorial manager if the number is not valid). Examples: HA then D-2, HA then D-1-bis

Specimens external to the MNHN

No checks are made for these inventory numbers

Administrative information

Curatorial manager

Detailed contact details of the curatorial manager or specimen manager (s) concerned

Contact facturation

Detailed contact information of the person for the billing of the analysis.


Additional information

Please attach a single file (preferably in pdf format, maximum size 64 MB) containing photographs of the specimen(s) to be digitized in all relevant orientations; and possibly any other complementary information (previous experiences, methodologies used, problems related to the handling of the object, etc.).
