Digital Cultural Heritage Documentation

The “Initial Training Network for Digital Cultural Heritage: Projecting our Past to the Future” is an EU FP7-ICT founded project in the area of the e-documentation / e-preservation and CH protection.

ITN-DCH aims to analyze, design, research, develop and validate an innovative multi-disciplinary and inter-sectorial research training framework that covers the entire lifecycle of digital CH research for a cost–effective preservation, documentation, protection and presentation of cultural heritage.

ITN-DCH targets all aspects of CH ranging from tangible (books, newspapers, images, drawings, manuscripts, uniforms, maps, artefacts, archaeological sites, monuments) to intangible content (e.g., music, performing arts, folklore, theatrical performances) and their inter-relationships. The project aims HTML Source Editor to boost the added value of CH assets by re-using them in real application environments (protection of CH, education, tourism industry, advertising, fashion, films, music, publishing, video games and TV) through research on new personalized, interactive, mixed and augmented reality enabled e-services, new recommendations in data acquisition, new forms of representations (3D/4D) of both tangible /intangible assets and interoperable metadata forms that allow easy data exchange and archiving.
