Applying Effective Data Modelling Approaches for the Creation of a Participatory Archive Platform

Julien A. Raemy
2021 Zenodo  
The development of a participatory archive platform such as the one being carried out for the PIA research project requires a flexible infrastructure allowing genuine data curation and a robust underlying  ...  A strong assumption to achieve this is to primarily leverage Linked Open Usable Data (LOUD) standards, such as IIIF, Linked Art or the Web Annotation Data Model, which help in the dissemination and reuse  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS PIA is made possible thanks to a SNSF Sinergia grant and I would like to thank all my colleagues, especially my supervisors (Peter Fornaro and Walter Leimgruber), the five other fellow  ...
