Multi-Dimensional Visual Datasets in the Arts and Humanities

March 29, 2022, National Gallery, London, UK

This workshop aims to bring together the research team, partners, as well as data producers and users. Specifically, it will co-develop a set of user requirements for a federated data service that addresses the needs of the community, both researchers and practitioners, to store, use, analyse and preserve complex visual datasets in the arts and humanities.

The programme will include presentations on existing technologies for 3D data repositories, research projects, and identified user requirements as well as allow for discussion to inform the developments within the project.
