DICET - INMOTO - ORganization of Cultural HEritage for Smart Tourism and Real-time Accessibility (OR.C.HE.S.T.R.A.)

The projects aim to develop tools for enhancement of the cultural heritage resources on the Italian territory and the promotion and marketing of tourism by the local administration. The two subproject share the technological platform and the paradigm of "Social Network" to create an ecosystem that gathers companies, public administration, citizens and tourists and generates "Social Innovation".


In this project ImageLab  has the task of developing information systems and operating platforms able to support both the organization and the access to large digital archives of cultural heritage images. In cultural heritage collections, in which objects are generally subject to some kind of expert analysis, an information system must meet two objectives: the first is to allow the association of elements with their descriptive metadata, and the second is to offer content based retrieval using state-of-the-art technologies. In this scenario ImageLab will propose novel features to extract and describe the image content for two different applications, image retrieval and automatic annotation, on archives of cultural heritage data.
