Documenting and Triaging Cultural Heritage (DATCH): Damage Assessment and Digital Preservation

Development of augmented reality software for rapidly documenting cultural heritage artifacts from archaeology and related disciplines while doing fieldwork.

The Documenting and Triaging Cultural Heritage (DATCH) project will, building on the successful prototype created using funding provided by an NEH Digital Humanities Advancement Level II grant, further develop DATCH open-source software for field assessment and documentation of built and movable cultural heritage using augmented reality hardware. It will permit real-time overlay comparisons of cultural heritage against earlier documentation and enable creation of to scale drawings, even in the field without a network connection. An internet connection will allow additional features, such as video calls with subject experts, to facilitate rapid needs assessments of heritage sites and enable on-site multi-disciplinary collaborations. With our goal of creating a cross platform system for head-mounted augmented reality devices, DATCH will continue to be developed in Unity and field-tested with different versions of Microsoft’s HoloLens and Magic Leap One.
