The increasing need of providing information about the surface of complex 3D objects accounts for new approaches in shape, color and reflectivity measurements. A method integrating 3D shape and reflectance measurement has been developed, based on multispectral imaging and directional illumination. The unified data representation of objects under investigation can aid machine vision, digital documentation and expand means of realistic imaging of unique items in virtual reality. While there already exist methods of merging image based reflectance measurements with 3D data collected independently, this is a step toward integration and increase of data correspondence. Also, the proposed data processing method allows further extension, and fulfills needs of both an accurate and mobile solution.
