Organisers: Martin Newman and Edmund Lee (English Heritage)
This session has two parts; initially it will focus on partnership working in Heritage ICT discussing both new method and techniques, and providing case studies of successful partnership working. The second part announces the results of a survey which marks the 25th anniversary of IfA paper Computer Usage in British Archaeology (Richards 1986). The 1986 survey investigated computer usage by archaeological organisations, looking at access to both hardware and software. The new survey, by IfA’s Information Management Special Interest Group (IMSIG) will explore developments e.g. open source applications, haptics, virtual reality, crowd sourcing, 3D printing and cloud computing and asking how these might impact on the heritage sector.
