Introduction
The Canadian Historical Documentation & Imaging Group, known as CANADIGM, was founded in 2011 to digitally record the historic sites, documents and artefacts related to Canadian history – especially those the general public might otherwise not have access to.
 
CANADIGM is a not-for-profit group based in London, Ontario consisting of visual artists, photographers, former educators, mechanical technicians, as well as media and logistics professionals. The tie that binds the group of volunteers together is a dedication to preserve Canadian history.

The group’s most recent project was The Souterraine Impressions. It involves documenting, researching and recreating images and carvings made in 1917 by Canadian soldiers hiding from the enemy in underground caves in France prior to the Battle for Vimy Ridge. Read more about this exciting project in our PROJECT section.

How ITS DONE
CANADIGM digitally records sites, documents and artefacts by creating, in a non-invasive manner, digital files using the latest photographic and documentation techniques. These files are archival quality and available for educational and historical research purposes through our archival data bank. By using 3D laser scanners, and or photogrammetry, the finest details can be captured without touching the surface or disturbing an artefact’s surface natural patina.
The laser scanned file of the image can then be reproduced using a 3D printer, for example, or through a variety of other modern machining processes.
These images can also be turned into 3D digital files suitable for use on the Web.
