In an effort to make emerging 3D and 2D technologies available to a broad range of users, an interdisciplinary group at the University of Minnesota came together to build AISOS, the Advanced Imaging Service for Objects and Spaces. This facility enables anyone at the institution, from undergraduates to members of the faculty, to engage with technologies like photogrammetry, structured light scanning, gigapixel macro imaging, and reflectance transformation imaging. By establishing the facility outside the traditional departmental or collegiate environment, we have demonstrated a model by which novel uses can emerge.

The AISOS model, which emphasizes high levels of service and an output-focused partnership with researchers, can be replicated at institutions of any size. Without the weight of a massive financial commitment, we can honestly judge its effectiveness & impact, understand real world limits, and view failure as an opportunity to learn.
