Intelligent Management of Heritage Buildings
The objective of this Action is to create a pan-European open network, to promote synergies between Heritage Science's specialists, industrial stakeholders and research/education players, to achieve a unified common understanding and operation in the Heritage Buildings domain, integrating multidisciplinary expertise, technology and know-how through a novel and independent global framework.
Virtual Multimodal Museum (ViMM)
Virtual Multimodal Museum (ViMM) is a high-visibility and participative Coordination and Support Action (CSA), funded under the EU Horizon 2020 programme (CULT-COOP-8-2016). ViMM brings together Europe and the world’s leading public and private sector organisations working on Virtual Museums and in the wider sector of Digital Cultural Heritage, to support high quality policy development, decision making and the use of technical advances. The partner consortium (see below) is supported by an expert Advisory Group in building the ViMM Framework, involving decision-makers and expert practitioners in defining and resolving issues spread across 7 interlinked Thematic Areas (‘the 7 Ds’): Definitions - Directions - Documentation - Dimensions -Demand - Discovery - Decisions
Augmented Representation of Cultural Objects
ARCO is a project that simplifies the digital capture of 3D objects (in this case cultural artefacts held in museum archives) through the use of photogrammetry, thus eliminating expensive laser based methods. The project analyses and provides innovative, but simple to use technical solutions for virtual cultural object creation using image based modelling through photogrammetry, manipulation of cultural objects through interactive model refinement and rendering, management of these objects (virtual representations) through an XML driven cultural object relational database, and presentation technology based on an augmented reality interface or web browser. All system components are integrated through XML providing data exchange and interoperability. The project demonstrates its results through a series of prototype system components leading to a final integrated system for evaluation-both technically and socio-economically. It addresses user (museum researcher and public) requirements, by involving them through the Museum Curatorial Steering Group.
