LARGE-SCALE METADATA ENRICHMENT OF 3D CULTURAL HERITAGE ARTEFACTS BY AUTOMATIC AND USER-BASED METADATA ACQUISITION
Closing date: 5pm on 28 November 2017
Interviews: Week commencing 04 December 2017
Project in brief
3D digital models of museum artefacts are a great way to document, manage, present and share heritage stored in museum collections. The latest 3D scanning technologies allow us to automate the creation of such models on a large scale. But large digitised collections need to be organised, using information about their origins, owners, purpose, shape, colour etc. This project will develop novel scalable methods to acquire metadata from 3D scans, such as shapes (a vase or a human statue), or components (an arm or a handle), and to identify links between these and other information such as text or images. Working in research labs in the UK and Germany, you will develop web-based 3D-centred annotation systems and contribute to international image and 3D model standardisation efforts.
