Poster: The Democratization of Scientific Imaging Through Metadata Management and Archival Submission Support (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Poster: The Democratization of Scientific Imaging Through Metadata Management and Archival Submission Support
Author: Mark Mudge
Author: Carla Schroer
Abstract: This is a Poster at the Digital Heritage Conference: The Digital Lab Notebook (DLN) project is an open source software tool chain that simplifies scientific imaging. The DLN’s user-friendly tools collect scientific metadata during information capture and processing, essential for building reliable and reusable “digital surrogates” of our cultural heritage. Then the DLN organizes these reusable digital representations and their data into standards-based Submission Information Packages (SIPs) for archival delivery and intake. The tools are for use by cultural heritage practitioners in scholarly disciplines, museums, libraries, and historic sites, as well as by local citizen scientists and caretakers around the world. Software internationalization and an initial translation into Arabic will foster the DLN’s adoption. The goal is to help save humanity’s imperiled cultural legacy through the widespread democratization of documentary technology.

Book Chapter: “Keeping Track of How We Scan” (Book Section)
Title: Book Chapter: “Keeping Track of How We Scan”
Author: Carla Schroer
Author: Mark Mudge
Author: Brendan Cormier
Editor: Brendan Cormier
Abstract: "Copy Culture: Sharing in the Age of Digital Reproduction explores how digital tools are revolutionizing the cultural heritage landscape through copies. Every day, museums, institutions and individuals alike are digitizing more and more of our global cultural heritage, resulting in vast databases of high-resolution images, 3D models and other forms of digital reproductions. These copies are being shared like never before, reading new audiences around the world, inspiring creativity, enabling learning and aiding preservation.Through essays, interviews and project profiles, the book draws from a cross-disciplinary group of experts to better understand the challenges and opportunities for making, storing, sharing and using digital reproductions, in museums and in everyday life.Copy Culture is a result of ReACH (Reproductions of Art and Cultural Heritage), an initiative spearheaded by the Victoria and Albert Museum with the Peri Foundation, to bring museums and cultural heritage practitioners together to collectively draw a roadmap for the future production and use of digital copies.Contributions by Anaïs Aguerre, Eugene Ch'ng, Chance Coughenour, Marion Crick, Abrahgam Drassinower, David Gissen, Laura Jones, Mari Lending, Adam Lowe, Mark Mudge, Wim Pijbes, Vernon Rapley, Loic Tallon, Merete Sanderhoff, Carla Schroer, Sandra L.

Beta: DLN:CaptureContext (Computer Program)
Title: Beta: DLN:CaptureContext
Author: Cultural Heritage Imaging
Author: Erich Leisch
Abstract: DLN:CaptureContext simplifies user management of a large volume of metadata through a user-friendly interface. This interface expedites user metadata input with a template process. For example, following a one-time entry of the user’s photo equipment and associated metadata, the user creates templates and saves commonly used equipment configurations. The software follows a similar process to help the user record and group metadata related to the locations, institutions, imaging subjects, image rights, and people associated with the photographic data acquisition session. Relevant metadata can be entered to an extent determined by the user, grouped as desired, selected with a mouse click at the time of the capture session, and added to the DLN for a specific set of images. The information is then mapped to the CIDOC Conceptual Reference Model and exported as Linked Open Data in XML and RDF formats. This software builds on prior work begun in 2013.

Beta: DLN:Inspector (Computer Program)
Title: Beta: DLN:Inspector
Author: Cultural Heritage Imaging
Author: Ronald Bourret
Abstract: DLN:Inspector automatically ensures that each image set meets the requirements for high-quality computational photography imaging. These requirements can be checked algorithmically. For example, Inspector can check that aperture does not change across a given image set. The tool will check for image-processing errors, such as sharpening, that should not be applied to photogrammetry or RTI data. This validation step will ensure users are alerted to potential issues in their image sets. Anyone else who wants to reuse these images can easily find this information.
