We at CHI are thrilled to announce the release of the first two tools (Version 1 Beta) in a new software suite, the Digital Lab Notebook (DLN). DLN is a metadata toolkit designed to simplify the collection of standards-based metadata, essential to scientific imaging. The goal is widespread democratization of tools that worldwide cultural caretakers can deploy to digitally capture, build, archive, and reuse digital representations. We hope you will download and try out these new tools! DLN:CaptureContext With a user-friendly interface, this tool expedites and simplifies user input of metadata -- such as locations, institutions, imaging subjects, image rights -- with a template process. DLN:Inspector This tool automatically ensures that each image set meets the requirements for high-quality computational photography imaging, checking for image-processing errors, such as sharpening, that should not be applied to photogrammetry or RTI image data. Instructional Videos for DLN See our new Vimeo channel -- Simplifying Scientific Imaging -- where we have posted an instructional video series about the DLN, what it does, how to use the software tools, and more.
We are pleased to announce that our next 4 day photogrammetry class will take place in San Francisco on May 18-21, 2015. More details and a registration form can be found here: http://culturalheritageimaging.org/What_We_Offer/Training/photogram_training/index.html The training at CHi is focused on core photogrammetric principles that produce high quality, measurable, scientific data. The capture method (how you take the images) is independent of any software package. You will collect image sets that can be used now and in the future. The processing is done in Agisoft PhotoScan Pro. We have worked in collaboration with senior photogrammatrists at the US Bureau of Land Management to develop the course and the methodology. The optimized workflow that we teach for processing can't be found anywhere else. Come, learn, add new skills! Carla
