Multilingual Data Integration and 3D Visualization of Cultural Heritage Information Workshop

Ancient strips of Chinese characters have been analyzed using infrared imaging, changing what we know about their content.

All day


This workshop allowed participants to present their research and to plan an international collaborative project (Chicago-Beijing-Tel Aviv) to develop a multilingual (English, Chinese, Hebrew) and cross-cultural “Online Cultural Heritage Research Environment” (OCHRE) that uses advanced information technology for the purpose of data integration, spatially accurate 3-D visualization and agent-based simulations of ancient socioeconomic and ecological dynamics.

Organizer: David Schloen (Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations), in collaboration with the Department of Scientific History and Archaeometry of the Graduate University of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
