Rich metadata is crucial for the documentation and retrieval of 3D datasets in cultural heritage. Generating metadata is expensive as it is a very time consuming semi-manual process. The exponential increase of digital assets requires novel approaches for the mass generation of metadata. We present an approach that is generic, minimizes user assistance, and is customizable for different metadata schemes and storage formats as it is based on generic forms. It scales well and was tested with a large database of digital CH objects.
