Digital Heritage Conference 2018

Digital Heritage Conference 2018

1. Photogrammetric imaging of a Diego Rivera fresco mural (Expo Demonstration)

CHI's Carla Schroer and Mark Mudge will demonstrate results from the Diego Rivera Mural Project at the Conference Expo on October 27–28.

2. “Illumination of Material Culture Symposium (II)” (Session)

Carla Schroer is co-chair for this session, a followup to the successful two-day symposium organized by CHI and The Metropolitan Museum of Art at the museum in New York City in March 2017. Ten presenters (including Carla and Mark Mudge of CHI) offer lightning talks on case studies and recent research in scientific imaging and computational photography, with an emphasis on Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI).

3. “Get Connected — Semantically!” (Panel)

Carla Schroer will participate in this panel with a talk entitled “The Digital Lab Notebook (DLN) a semantically-enabled metadata toolkit for the computational photography techniques of photogrammetry and Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI)”.

4. “The Democratization of Scientific Imaging through Metadata Management and Archival Submission Support” (Poster)

Carla and Mark of CHI will present this poster on the process of developing standards for preservation of digital 3D data, describing CHI's approach.

5. “The Portable Light Domes in PIXEL+: Acquisition, Viewing, and Analysis” (Session and Panel)

In this session, the authors introduce the Leuven multi-light reflectance (MLR) Portable Light Dome (PLD) imaging system, developed at the University of Leuven, Belgium. The system comprises four acquisition domes varying in size and settings with managing software. The PLD systems allow the virtual relighting of imaged surfaces with different visualization shaders. Carla Schroer and Mark Mudge will participate in a closing panel discussion about how MLR approaches best serve cultural heritage.

San Francisco, CA: Friday, October 26–Tuesday, October 30, 2018. Time and exact locations to be announced.


CIDOC-ICOM Conference in 2018

CIDOC-ICOM Conference 2018

“Automating the Application of CRM-dig to the Provenance Metadata for Computational Photography Based Imaging” (Workshop/Tutorial)

This half-day tutorial provides lectures, demonstrations, discussion, and hands-on practice with software tools for creating and validating context and process metadata for photographic image sequences. The initial software is designed for RTI and photogrammetry, though the approach has broader applicability. The tools produce Linked Open Data mapped to CRM-dig saved as RDF. The user need not know anything about the CRM or linked open data to use these tools, which form the basis of the Digital Lab Notebook (DLN). The DLN serves the same function as a written scientist’s lab notebook, enabling data inspection and reuse by others.

Heraklion, Crete: Sunday, September 30, 2018, 10:00 am–12:00 pm, Cultural Conference Centre of Heraklion (CCCH)


Decentralized Web Summit 2018

Decentralized Web Conference 2018

“Global VIsions / Working Code” (Table)

Carla Schroer will host a table in the Science Fair at this conference produced by the Internet Archive.

San Francisco, CA: Tuesday, July 31, 2018, 6:00 pm–9:00 pm, Internet Archive, 300 Funston Ave.


Archiving 2018 logo

Archiving 2018: The IS&T Archiving Conference

ArchSC04: “Preservation Strategies for Computational Photography based Imaging: Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI) and Photogrammetry” (Short Course)

This short course, presented by Carla Schroer and Mark Mudge as part of the Digital Preservation track, provides lectures, demonstrations, discussion, and hands-on practice with software tools for creating and validating context and process metadata for photographic image sequences. The initial software is designed for RTI and photogrammetry, though the approach has broader applicability. These tools form the basis of the Digital Lab Notebook (DLN). The DLN serves the same function as a written scientist’s lab notebook, enabling data inspection and reuse by others. The course begins with an overview of both RTI and photogrammetry, including basics of image capture and examples of each from cultural heritage subjects. Then there is an exploration into CHI’s approach to metadata collection and image validation, including the hands-on use of new, open source software tools.

Washington, DC: Tuesday, April 17, 2018, 8:00 am–12:00 pm, National Archives


Virginia Tech logo

Series on 3D and VR Services

3D Collection Strategies (Forums)

Carla Schroer of CHI participated in a forum series funded by Virginia Tech University Libraries, Indiana University Libraries, and the University of Oklahoma Libraries. The three forums aimed at developing a roadmap and white paper for library adoption of 3D and virtual reality (VR) services.

Arlington, VA: Thursday, March 1 and Friday, March 2, 2018


SF Lit

Event by ARtefactVR, a San Francisco Immersive Design Studio

San Francisco Lit! (Meeting)

This evening event offered presentations for “historians, the art community, the tech community, Emperor Norton devotees and lovers of light!”. Carla Schroer of CHI gave a talk on the technologies used for digital capture and documentation of the world’s cultural, scientific, and artistic treasures, including imaging techniques used in the conservation process for the Diego Rivera mural at City College of San Francisco.

San Francisco, CA: Monday, February 26, 2018, 6:30 pm–9:30 pm, Microsoft Reactor, 680 Folsom Street, Suite 145

A Meetup of Motion Designers of San Francisco

Photogrammetry Talk With CHI (Meetup Event)

In this evening talk, hosted by Christopher Bernal at a meetup of Motion Designers of San Francisco, Carla Schroer and Mark Mudge, cofounders of Cultural Heritage Imaging (CHI), present advances in robust new imaging tools from the emerging science known as computational photography. Examples of existing and new uses of photography-based imaging will be demonstrated, including Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI), and 3D photogrammetry. Also central to this work is the creation of data that can be reused for scientific purposes by others, now and in the future, in the form of a Digital Lab Notebook and tools under construction to support it.

San Francisco, CA: Tuesday, February 13, 2018, 6:00 pm–9:30 pm, Cultural Heritage Imaging Studio, 2325 3rd Street, Suite 323


CS3DP National Forum 1

CS3DP National Forum 1: Community Standards for 3D Data Preservation

Poster from CHI (Poster Presentation)

Funded by a National Leadership Grant from the Institute of Museums and Library Services (IMLS), the Community Standards for 3D Data Preservation (CS3DP) project brings community stakeholders together (librarians, curators, and 3D practitioners) for two forums. The overall purpose is to begin the process of developing standards for preservation of digital 3D data. As part of the three-day CS3DP-Forum 1, Carla Schroer, Director at CHI, will present a poster describing CHI's approach.

St. Louis, MO: Monday evening, February 5, 2018, at Washington University, Receptions and Posters area
