DH CH Launch Event: Digital Visual Media and Metadata (June 07-09, 2020)

Interdisciplinary Digital Humanities Research Workshop. The combination of image and text is essential to provide and exchange information in the digital domain. Researchers from different image-based research fields include different approaches to the subject of digital visual media and metadata.

Metadata and semantic information are crucial for most of such operations with data. Enriching images with words and words with images is more important than ever.

This can be demonstrated for example by the research on cultural heritage, as important sources of great importance for our social and cultural identity. The change towards digital methods and tools is essential in this context in several ways since the form of capturing technology as well as the visualization of content changed greatly with the advent of the digital. Consequently, we will visit important roman cultural heritage institutions.
