DH-CH Event 7. - 9. June 2021, Rome - Digital Images, Metadata and Cultural Heritage Objects

Online Event: dh-ch.ch Digital Humanities Workshop @ the Istituto Svizzero and the Bibliotheca Hertziana in Rome next Monday, 7. - 9. June 2021

Digital Images, Metadata and Cultural Heritage Objects

Metadata and semantic information are crucial for most operations with data. Enriching images with words and words with images is more important than ever.
That's why the focus of a starting event is on image-based research. This can be demonstrated particularly well by the research on cultural heritage, as important sources of great importance for our social and cultural identity. The change towards digital methods and tools is essential in this context in several ways since the form of capturing technology as well as the visualization of content changed greatly with the advent of the digital.
