Title: eculture at UC Berkeley: Networked cultural and environmental data


1
e-culture at UC Berkeley Networked cultural and
environmental data
  • Caverlee Cary
  • Staff Research Associate
  • Geographic Information Science Center
  • University of California, Berkeley
  • Asia-Pacific Advanced Networking Conference
  • Digital Resources for e-Culture and Historical
    Mapping
  • Bangkok, Thailand
  • January 26, 2005

2
Issues for consideration
  • Art, artifacts, and the digital image
  • From image to e-culture
  • E-culture networking initiatives at UCB Berkeley
  • GIS and networked e-culture mediating art and
    the world in the Mapping Ayutthaya project

3
Art, artifacts, and the digital image
  • Authenticity and aura
  • Digital technology a change in the relationship
    between society and art objects
  • Greater accuracy greater truth?

4
From image to e-culture
  • E-culture as the sum of digital product
    visualizing or expressing aspects of culture
  • Relationship between culture and simulation of
    culture
  • Interoperable e-culture

5
Networking initiatives at UC Berkeley
  • The University of California Berkeley Art Museum
    and Pacific Film Archive
  • The Museum Informatics Project (MIP)
  • The Berkeley Natural History Museums consortium
  • The Electronic Cultural Atlas Initiative (ECAI)

6
The University of California Berkeley Art Museum
and Pacific Film ArchivePioneer in
interoperable collections
  • One of the first museums to explore networked
    visual arts collections
  • Collections modern art and Asian art
  • Early efforts to integrate collections with
    libraries and archives through MOAC
  • bampfa.berkeley.edu

7
Berkeley Art Museum collection query interface
8
The Museum Informatics ProjectMulti-collection
network portal
  • Coordinates the application of information
    technology in museums and other organized,
    non-book collections of UC Berkeley
  • data models
  • system architectures
  • demonstration systems
  • mip.berkeley.edu

9
Museum Informatics Project portal to collections
websites
10
The Berkeley Natural History Museumsnetwork for
queries across collections
  • Common interface for collection search
  • Unites biological diversity, from molecular
    evolution to human prehistory
  • Cultural data the Hearst Museum of Anthropology
  • Uses the Darwin Core version 1 standard
  • DiGIR (Distributed Generic Information Retrieval)
  • Database management at the GIS Center
  • http//bnhm.berkeley.museum/

11
Interface for queries across collections
12
Moving toward geographic search
  • Current capacity to browse all collections by
    country, province, or state
  • Future Grant funding development of an online
    automated georeferencing tool, BioGeoMancer, to
    assign coordinates to data with location
    information but without coordinates

13
The Electronic Cultural Atlas Initiativee-cultur
e networking at the data level
  • Portal to cultural data
  • Data contributors largely beyond the University
    of California
  • GIS for the humanities
  • Requires contributor registration of datasets
    (individual as well as institutional
    participation level)
  • URL ecai.org

14
The dataset search interface ECAI Metadata
Clearinghouse
15
Dataset discovery, retrieval, and visualization
using Timemap tools
16
ECAI Southeast AsiaA case study for regional
e-culture
  • Based at the UC Berkeley GIS Center
  • Invites participation by all with cultural data
    pertaining to Southeast Asia region
  • Sponsors workshops in ECAI technology
  • http//www.gisc.berkeley.edu/seadca/coverpage.html

17
Art and the world the Mapping Ayutthaya
project
  • Informational supplement to Kingdom of Siam
    exhibition (Asian Art Museum, San Francisco)
  • Data from exhibition, integrated with other
    information
  • AAM a mechanism for education about Ayutthaya
  • GISC a mechanism for introducing GIS

18
Using GIS to visualize Ayutthaya as a trading
entrepot
  • Using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to
    visualize, not analyze
  • GIS well suited to spatially distributed
    information
  • GIS well suited to integrating discrete kinds of
    information

19
Using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to
visualize, not analyze
  • Three fixed map-space scales for users
  • Global
  • Siam
  • Ayutthaya
  • Using Timemap software, a customized,
    time-enabled GIS viewer, not analysis tool

20
GIS well suited to spatially distributed
information
  • Selected points of contact
  • Image links specific to the exhibition
  • Global and Siam layers combine exhibition
    images and datasets from the Southeast Asia
    Digital Cultural Atlas project

21
GIS well suited to integrating discrete kinds of
geo-referenced cultural data
  • Additional datasets integrated with the
    exhibition images
  • Datasets culled from the Southeast Asia digital
    cultural atlas trade routes project

24
GIS well suited to integrating discrete kinds of
spatial imaging
  • Ayutthaya layer includes a range of display
    options for mapping Ayutthaya
  • User options for interface selection
  • historical maps
  • political maps
  • topographic maps
  • satellite images
  • aerial images

    Visiting Scholar, GIS Center, and Professor,
    Chulachomklao Royal Military Academy)

Conclusion
  • Mapping Ayutthaya is an exemplar of a project
    that both draws from and contributes to the sum
    of networked e-culture
  • Mapping Ayutthaya is intended to teach not only
    about Ayutthaya in the narrow context of the
    Kingdom of Siam exhibition, but about Thai
    history, the dynamics of global cultural
    connections, and the potential of GIS for the
    humanities
  • Mapping Ayutthaya can continue to grow with
    fresh contribution and manipulation of its data,
    or may morph into other projects with new
    internet lives
