Malcolm Wolski presented on the project activities at the 9th Plenary of the Research Data Alliance in Barcelona in early April. The session involved presentations from a number of project activities, including C&Cs project, from the international audience followed by discussions on topics of interest.
Other presentations covered:
- The scope of the The European Research Infrastructure for Heritage Science and related IPERION CH (Integrated Platform for the European Research Infrastructure ON Cultural Heritage)
- A PID service being developed by the National Gallery London with a unique code: xxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx. Three alphanumeric characters to define specific types of group of concepts – objects, people, events etc. Sets of four alphanumeric characters as a simple unique code. Each extra set of four alphanumeric characters will multiply the total number by 364
- The scope of activities under project THOR (funded by European Commission) to develop and establish seamless integration between articles, data, and researchers across the research lifecycle.
- DARIAH-EU activities in digital research infrastructure for the arts and humanities
- ResearchSpace being developed by the British Museum. ResearchSpace development uses the CIDOC Conceptual Reference Model (CRM). This means that data from many different sources can be integrated, but while access to the data is homogeneous, the data itself retains its individual characteristics, original meaning and perspectives. This provides the ideal environment for research and allows analysis at both micro and macro levels.
- Iiif and Project Mirador – a multi-institutional image viewer
