Survey Invitation: Mapping European Data Infrastructures for 3D Cultural Heritage

Time Machine Organisation (TMO) in collaboration with the Europeana Initiative have developed a survey seeking to better understand the existing landscape of digital European data infrastructures facilitating the storage of 3D cultural heritage datasets/digital objects. The questions address various topics covering metadata standards, the quality of 3D data, licensing for 3D data, and how the data can be accessed or shared and by whom. By answering these questions you will help to better understand how 3D data is being managed and which will contribute to shaping the future of the common European data space for cultural heritage that is currently taking more and more shape.

Operators of data repositories (= infrastructures to store and manage digital files and their corresponding metadata such as digital archives, data collections, virtual research infrastructures, etc.) holding 3D data are invited to participate in this survey.

Your insights will contribute to shaping the future of digital cultural heritage preservation, accessibility and reuse in Europe. Join us in building a vibrant and inclusive digital environment for our shared cultural heritage!

The survey consists of 23 questions on operating institutions, individual 3D digital objects, 3D datasets and data handling. Answering the questions will take about 10 minutes.

It will close on 8. April 2024.
