Digital Museum Map

The Digital Museum Map application demonstrates the use of visualisation and browsing to enable users to freely explore a virtual museum without requiring expert knowledge. The application enables access to a collection of approximately 2000 objects from the ancient Egypt collection at the World Museum in Liverpool, UK.

One of the issues with digital cultural heritage is that there is more data available than can be curated into an explorable structure by hand. The Digital Museum Map addresses this by providing a system that takes the source digital cultural heritage data and automatically arranges the items into floors and rooms to create a semantic structure that can be explored.

This structure is then loaded into the web interface to provide an interface that can easily be explored by users who are interested in cultural heritage, but who are not experts in the field.
