DIOPTRA participated at Drupal HackCamp

Friday, June 8, 2018

Dioptra presented "Impact of Drupal and schema.org in the Semantic Web and interoperability of Cultural Heritage knowledge" at the Drupal HackCamp. Τhe presentation focused on how Cultural Heritage Institutions are publishing their collections on the Web to achieve universal access to knowledge by anyone at any time worldwide and without having physical access to the host institution (Museum, Library, and so forth). Usually, those collections include Archaeological objects, photographs, books, maps, text, manuscripts, 3D models and more. However, Despite the extraordinary efforts to improve and automate collection and processing of information on the Web, the progress made is insignificant. Most of the digital cultural heritage collections which informed within digital archives are in isolated data silos.
