E-Curator: 3D Colour Scans for Object Assessment.
(Proceedings) CIDOC, Annual conference of the International Documentation Committee of the International Council of Museums, 'The Digital Curation of Cultural Heritage'.
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.
