Research project: Virtual Museum of the Pacific (VMP)
- Start date:
- Australian Research Council Linkage Grant (ARC)
For the past two decades Australia has been a world leader in museum management, particularly in areas of collection access and digitisation. The Virtual Museum of the Pacific (VMP) project provides Australia access to leading-edge, content-based multimedia management and retrieval.
This project will assist the Australian Museum to maintain a competitive edge nationally and internationally through new approaches to annotating, searching and navigating digital collections. Trialed in this major institution, the project outcomes have great potential for dissemination and application throughout the collections sector.
