Data Sustainability and Advanced Metadata Management for Scientific Imaging in the Humanities

The completion of two case studies examining documentation of computational photography methods applied to humanities collections, as well as dissemination of best practices and enhancement of relevant software tools.

This project will provide enhanced data sustainability, along with metadata and knowledge management, for computational photography (CP) software tools. CP technologies are based on the algorithmic extraction of information from multiple photographs, a process that generates new information not found in any of the original photos. The project will be based on not yet deployed prior work, providing metadata harvesting and knowledge management tools for Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI) and Algorithmic Rendering (AR), which are undergoing rapid adoption by humanities practitioners. The project will evaluate and update these tools, exploring practical methods of organizing this data for archival ingest and reuse on site at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum and the Institute of Classical Archaeology at the University of Texas at Austin. The project will study extending the management tools to other CP technologies, such as Structure from Motion photogrammetry and multispectral imaging.
