Abstract

Realising the importance of digital technologies and new interdisciplinary possibilities, the E-curator project has been undertaken by UCL Museums and Collections with the goal of applying two state of the art digital technologies: 3D colour laser scanning and e-Science technologies. This project captures and shares very large three-dimensional scans and detailed datasets about museum artefacts in a secure computing environment. This paper presents an overview about the E-curator project focussing specifically on the integration of user needs through the participatory user interface design process.
