Gonio spectral imaging method is significant to record the shape, reflectance spectra, gloss and texture of 3-D object for digital archives. This method, however, takes much time to record the object. In this paper, a new method based on the genetic algorithm is introduced to reduce the taking time by optimizing the configuration of camera and illumination. We confirmed the effectiveness of the method by the computer simulation. We also confirmed the significance of the algorithm by using the developed gonio spectral imaging system based on the result of computer simulation.
