Martinez, K. and Hamber, A. (1989) Towards a colorimetric digital image archive for the visual arts , pp. 114-121.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)


The aim of this project is to produce a high-resolution, colorimetric and permanent digital archive of images taken directly from works of art. The proposed system is designed for use in education, research, galleries and museums. Tentative user requirements are examined with particular reference to resolution, image access and colorimetry. Existing technology and projects are considered. Some 3000x3000 pel images of paintings are used to illustrate the interelationship between dimensions of the original, its inherent detail, scan resolution and display.
