geocoded digital content

Geocoded Digital Cultural Content (PDF, 2731 kb)

This book Geocoded Digital Cultural Content, edited by Franc J. Zakrajsek and Vlasta Vodeb focuses on Geographic location, which is a very important attribute of a cultural heritage item. It can describe provenience, the current institution, as well as the location of the event or other related events. The added value of the geo-coded cultural content is in the browsing of cultural portals efficiently through space and time, and searching for content in a more user friendly way. This work is a result of a strong cooperation between Linked Heritage and the INDICATE project, a concluded European Union FP7 project which aimed to establish a network of common interest made up of experts and researchers in the field of e-infrastructures and digital cultural heritage at Euro Mediterranean level.
