This paper describes a practical multidisciplinary approach to the traceable storage and transmission of 3D colour scan datasets using a combination of state of the art colour laser scanning technology, an e-Science developed data storage and retrieval solution (SRB) and an internet capable 3D visualisation tool which is being iteratively designed in association with a team of museum curators and conservators who are able to directly compare the handling of a range of original objects with their virtual copies. Examples taken from a core object group from the world-class UCL Museums and Collections that have been recorded with a state of the art Arius3D colour laser scanner provide a demonstration of the developed 3D recording methodology and highlight how the developed system is capable of complementing traditional cataloguing methods for museum artefacts.
