In recent years, with the development of "Digital Archives" technology, preserving historical assets including cultural artifacts as digital data has started to become possible. However, this method is still in the midst of development, therefore the traditional method of creating data from photos and text is still preferred. When we consider "Digital Archives" as an integrated technology of collecting, processing, preserving and using data, the skill of collecting data is comparatively underdeveloped. This technology proposed in this report is another way to collect data, and we hope it will enhance the quality of "Digital Archives" of such fields as fine arts and crafts like Japanese swords.
