3D Visualisation in the Arts Network
3DVisA was funded between 2006 and 2008 by the UK Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC). The Network was hosted by King's Visualisation Lab in the Centre for Computing in the Humanities at King's College London. It was an integral part of a wider UK Visualisation Support Network, VizNET, spanning the UK academic research community. This website documents some of the 3DVisA activities and provides access to publications and resources created in 2006-2008, some of which continue to be maintained and augmented by the Department of Digital Humanities at King's College London, namely The London Charter for the use of three-dimensional Visualisation in the Research and Communication of Cultural Heritage, of which 3DVisA was the Secretariat. Also maintained is the Index of 3D Projects, edited by Anna Bentkowska-Kafel, and welcomes new contributions.
The aim of 3DVisA was to enhance and extend 3D visualisation-related knowledge, understanding and opportunities in Arts and Humanities domains. This goal remains valid, owing to an increasing number of researchers, educators, and learners creating and/or using 3D visualisation technologies.
3DVisA aimed to bridge the gap in the sharing of knowledge and skills among projects within Arts and Humanities disciplines, and between these and other domains. 3DVisA has coordinated research on methods and standards in collaborative research, intellectual property issues, and commercial exploitation of resources. We no longer provide information and advice regarding opportunities for funding.
