Call for Papers

(Hochschule Mainz – University of Applied Sciences, Germany)

Keywords: 3D models, data modelling, human- and machine-readable documentation standards

Call: The session is dedicated to the accelerating amount of digital 3d data of cultural heritage. The development of ICT, in particular the fast network/internet connection, the CPU supported computer graphic and the WebGL technology, allow new access to 3d content. The 3d repositories, like, provide and support the web-based visualization of the 3d models. Since 2018 the 3d upload is supported via in Wikipedia, too.
The urgent question how to describe the 3d models in a data model behind the geometry in a way to be human- and machine-readable is still to be clarified in the scientific community.
In the civil engineering the BIM method have been introduced and facilitates the whole planning and construction process, based on the 3d coordination model. The historic/heritage BIM investigates the possibility to capture and document the build cultural heritage in the exchange data model, called Industry Foundation Classes (ISO 16739-1:2018).
In the digital and spatial humanities several approaches were undertaken to fill the information gap through the adaption and integration of CIDOC CRM (ISO 21127:2014) and the development of virtual research environments. The projects reveal great potential for the 3d data set annotation and semantic enrichment as well as the web-based visualization but there are still missing approved standard and applied methodology how to prepare digital 3d research data for subsequent computational operation, amongst other things the artificial intelligence. The session wants to present and discuss various methods for data enrichments as well as human- and machine-readable standards and invites colleagues from the wide field of archaeology, art and architecture history as well as civil engineering, computer graphic and computer sciences.
