CREW and other AG (VRE projects) were presented as part of the JISC Roadshow in London
Workshop title From motion capture to ancient manuscripts: using complex digital resources across disciplines, Given within the talk “Reasons and Experience for Needing Visualizations of Complex Remote Data Sources”, Martin Turner, University of Manchester Friday 30th January 2009. This involved also a series of visualization steering methods and example case studies from experiences at the University of Manchester and the vizNET (JISC) initiative.
Workshop abstract was “Researchers from all parts of the campus are long-used to collecting, structuring and presenting their data in databases, spreadsheets, webpages etc, using a range of widely available and generic tools. In recent years, however, advances in digitization technologies have led to the creation of much more complex data objects.”
Topics did include a discussion on meta-data and its essential use and search, but no final solutions were given. One point was the concept of providence and also how to change meta-data – lots of food for thought.
PS should be available as a video recorded session – without the question and answer sessions.
