PhD studentship at the Cultural Informatics Research Group at the University of Brighton

Title: Methods and tools for integrating and exploiting 3D and historic documentation in heterogeneous Digital Humanities repositories

This research will develop techniques to combine 3D shape and surface colour data with relevant historic documentation. This combination will allow a wealth of previous research and content to be used in investigating the provenance of newly documented artefacts and advance the state of the art on visual analytic technologies to support other research scenarios (for example, the discoverability of 3D content on the web). As a result, it will increase the range, volume and availability of linked digital resources related to Digital Humanities, whilst also addressing the development of key underpinning research methods whose applicability can be migrated to different application domains, such as heritage, tourism, computer games, inspiring designers and 3D printing. The aim of the PhD is to develop a methodology for improving the creation of digital repositories with 3D content and for the automatic linking of 3D content to other related data whether from specific local archives or on the web.
