Proc. International Council of Museums Conference, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil,
22 - 28 Sep 2002.
An Open Source high performance and flexible database system dedicated to art conservation-restoration and research has been developed by Celartem Technology in association with the C2RMF to handle information on works of art. This includes detailed information on the works themselves as well as information relating to digital images of the works, restoration reports and image recognition meta-data. Other kinds of information can also be added as required. The system includes advanced multilingual searching and indexing capabilities as well as a high resolution image viewer and image content recognition modules. The data can be presented in XML or other formats. Separate databases can also be linked together to allow information to be exchanged and analysed not only within museum laboratories, but between different institutions also.
