Description

This paper details the development and implementation of the MOVIO project. The Italian Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Tourism (MiBACT) outlined best practices for groups presenting historical and educational archival information to the general public via online digital exhibitions. The authors argue that the purpose of online digital exhibitions is to “…provide alternative or extending denser experiences… the user in a process of discovery”. With this framework, the GruppoMeta organization began designing and developing the MOVIO project. The authors describe the project as a semantic content management system built around vastly detailed metadata. The content, which can be video, images, audio, or text, can be assembled by the user or a curator via the Ontology Builder. Once specific nodes are built, the system will identify relevant content using the detailed metadata. The project is currently released under a MIT open source license and is seeking further development resources from the European community.
