Workshop 3

WKS 3: Arches Heritage Inventory and Management

February 9th-10th | 9:30-18:00

Workshop Tutor: Richard Jennings

The workshop will run over two days. In the morning of the first day Richard will give a presentation of Arches* and outline its potential application in the heritage management sector and beyond. This will be followed by a discussion of how to start planning to work with Arches v4 and what makes for a good project design. He will also talk about the CiDOC CRM. In the afternoon we will go though the steps involved in setting up an Arches Project. On the first day we will use existing Arches datasets to pursue these steps and to demonstrate its potential. On the second day we will aim to get participants started on their own Arches projects in order that they can continue to develop them on completion of the Workshop.

*The Arches project is a collaboration between the Getty Conservation Institute (GCI) and World Monuments Fund (WMF) to develop for the international heritage field an open source, web- and geospatially based information system that is purpose-built to inventory and manage immovable cultural heritage.
