Abstract

We describe a system which addresses all the processes involved in digitally acquiring, modelling, storing, manipulating and creating virtual exhibitions from 3D museum artefacts. More specifically, we examine the significance of metadata in enabling and supporting all of these processes and describe the extensive facilities provided for authoring, maintaining and managing metadata. The development of the system has been heavily influenced by factors relating to interoperability, standards, museum best practice and feedback from two museum pilot sites. Finally, we briefly consider the system in the wider context of applications such as virtual learning environments and distributed repositories of archives.

Item Type: Article
Additional Information: Originality: An innovative ARCO Metadata Element Set (AMS) for describing digitally acquisition, modelling, cataloguing, manipulating and creating virtual museum exhibitions from 3D museum artefacts. Rigour: The AMS is designed to exploit interoperability, international standards, museum best practice and feedback from two museum pilot sites in regular user trials during its 3 year development cycle. Significance: Examined the significance of metadata in enabling and supporting content authoring, maintaining and managing metadata in a virtual museum exhibition context. Impact: This research, now publicly available, forms part of a new research area in digital heritage systems funded by the European commission in FP5.
