Keeping Data Alive: Supporting Reuse and Repurposing of 3D Data in the Humanities

A project to develop 3D architectural models of Mayan cities in an open source database for reuse and repurposing in other architectural reconstructions, leading to the creation of an open source platform to host, deliver, and visualize 3D models linked to descriptive data.

The goals of this one year project are to develop workflows to: (1) generate, store, and make accessible 3D models of architecture in an open source database that scholars can (re)use and repurpose to create their own multi-scalar reconstructions ranging from individual buildings to entire cityscapes and (2) host, deliver, and visualize 3D models, linked to metadata, paradata, and descriptive data, in an open source 3D visualization environment. The project includes front-end and back-end deliverables that will contribute to data sustainability and accessibility in the humanities. Front-end deliverables include a project website hosting workflows with tutorials and a proto-database for beta-testing and capturing user feedback. Back-end deliverables include "white paper" describing the initial database design, data structuring, initial findings, ongoing challenges, and next steps.
