The use of technical imaging of art works has a long history, dating from the very early days of x-radiography up to today's computer imaging technologies. Besides the use of x-rays, the "Conservators, conservation scientists and art historians have turned to another technique well known to the GIS community, multi-spectral imaging." ultraviolet and infrared (IR) regions of the electromagnetic spectrum have found the most extensive use in this field. These examination tools yield significant information about the construction of a work of art, the materials the artist or subsequent restorers may have used, and generally the creative development of the work.
