Regional Portals as Intermediaries for Digital Historic Data

Round Table CALL FOR SHORT PAPERS Chairs: Anita EICHINGER | Christoph SONNLECHNER Description of the round table: The Internet has established itself in recent years as an important presentation and research instrument in the historical and cultural history area. Numerous institutions active in historic regional, provincial or communal contexts now offer internet portals on their topic. With this extension of their existing services, the institutions are confronted with a variety of cross-sectional tasks, which usually represent new fields of work for them. Portals are run by archives, libraries and museums sometimes in cooperation with each other. By means of maps (via GIS etc.) or encyclopedic articles, digitized documents from these institutions are displayed in a certain context via regional portals. Data can be offered through a semantic search or structured by other means. The aim of all these portals is to offer data in a structured manner. Digital Humanities would be one area of application for data from such portals but by far not the only one. This panel asks for best practice examples. How can large amounts of borne digital and digitized historic documents from different collections and fonds referring to certain thematic or regional contexts be made searchable in a structured manner? Target group: Archivists, librarians, curators of museums, employees of cultural...

Open Data, Public Science, and Global Digital Heritage

Round Table CALL for SHORT PAPERS Chairs: Victor Manuel LOPEZ-MENCHERO BENICHO | Herbert D. G. MASCHNER, USA Description of the round table: Digital cultural heritage requires a two-part approach. First, the accurate and scientifically valid documentation of cultural heritage monuments and artifacts requires an integration of geospatial techniques, visualization, virtualization, and computer modeling with archaeology, art, and architecture. This necessitates both broad and specialized training of practitioners and creates, by default, a multi-disciplinary approach. Second, making these data useful, and making data and results available to the public is essential. This requires access to long-term digital storage and curation, easily managed databases, and the support of local and regional administrations. The public owns its cultural heritage. Public funding sponsors our work and we owe our citizens access to the results of their taxation. Over the last two years more than 30 sites and monuments have been digitally documented in central and southeastern Spain. Using terrestrial and UAV photogrammetry, high resolution laser scanners, and airborne LiDAR, we have collected over 40 terabytes of data and produced an extensive suite of outputs. Spanning the Bronze Age to the 19th Century, and including everything from Roman dams to fortifications, churches, public plazas, and bull rings, this project includes nearly every type of data and acquisition technique required for the modern documentation of cultural heritage. This round-table presentation and discussion will highlight the successes of recent work documenting Spanish cultural heritage and our efforts to make the data scientifically useful and publically available. Target group: Archaeologists, architects, historians, geospatial analysts, 3D modelers. Secifics: This will round-table to highlight the methods, techniques, and politics associated with creating a global digital heritage. We anticipate up to 12 short presentations and extensive...
