Abstract. The paper presents an investigation about the combination of multispectral and 3D imaging aiming at the analysis of the condition and preservation of an ancient vase. Visible-reflected (VIS) and -induced luminescence (UVL) images are mapped to 3D models produced with image- and range-based 3D modelling techniques. The case study is an Attic vase, part of the pottery collection of the Landesmuseum Rudolfinum (Carinthia, Austria) and temporarily stored in the Institute of Archaeology of the University of Graz, Austria. The aim of this study is to exploit the added-value provided by mapping multispectral imaging onto 3D geometry for a comprehensive knowledge of the condition of a restored Cultural Heritage (CH) item.
