CoSTAR Public Talk: ARCHES Getty Conservation Institute

Managing Cultural Heritage (CH) data can be a daunting task.  Uncertainties in dating CH resources, multi-scale geospatial representations, and complex (but essential) relationships among objects, activities, agents, and events make implementing data management applications for CH challenging.  Once a data management system is implemented, accessing, visualizing, and sharing CH data often requires significant effort. To help the CH field address the difficulties in managing and using CH data, The Getty Conservation Institute has developed Arches, an Open Source, freely available data management, and visualization platform.  Arches provide a comprehensive set of modern data management, visualization, and integration capabilities to help identify the appropriate actions needed to protect and preserve cultural heritage resources in a dynamic and changing world.  This presentation will summarize how Arches helps improve stewardship of CH resources and where it is being used around the world.
