Announcing this week’s seminar in the Digital Classicist & Institute of Classical Studies Summer seminars for 2013:
Valeria Vitale (King’s College London)
An Ontology for 3D Visualisation in Cultural Heritage
Friday June 14 at 16:30
Room G37, Senate House, Malet Street, London, WC1E 7HU
Behind each scholarly 3D visualisation is a thorough study of records, iconography, literary sources, artistic canons and precedents. However, this research process is seldom visible in the final outcome to either the general public or the academy. This paper suggests the use of an RDF ontology to describe 3D models, identify relationships, and connect them to their diverse related sources (photographs, GIS coordinates, academic literature, etc.). If such an ontology can be derived and applied it will optimise the documentation process, and further, allow 3D visualisations to join and enrich the growing network of linked digital resources to study the past.
The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.
All are welcome
