Principle 1- Subject Communities
The aims and objectives of this Charter are valid across all domains in which 3d visualisation can be applied to cultural heritage. Related specialist subject areas should therefore adopt and build upon the principles established by this Charter.
Principle 2 - Aims and Methods
Numerous types of 3d visualisation methods and outcomes exist, and can be used to address a wide range of research and communication aims. A 3d visualisation method should normally only be used to address an aim when it is the most appropriate available method for that purpose.
Principle 3 - Sources
In order to ensure the intellectual integrity of 3d visualisation methods and outcomes, relevant sources should be identified and evaluated in a structured way.
Principle 4 - Transparency Requirements
Sufficient information should be provided to allow 3d visualisation methods and outcomes to be understood and evaluated appropriately in relation to the contexts in which they are used and disseminated.
Principle 5 - Documentation
The process and outcomes of 3d visualisation creation should be sufficiently documented to enable the creation of accurate transparency records, potential reuse of the research conducted and its outcomes in new contexts, enhanced resource discovery and accessibility, and to promote understanding beyond the original subject community.
Principle 6 - Technical Standards
Appropriate standards and ontologies for documenting 3D visualisation methods and outcomes should be identified at subject community level
in order to enable optimum interoperability and comparability within and between domains.
Principle 7 - Sustainability
3d visualisation outcomes pertaining to cultural heritage and created in accordance with the principles established by this Charter, constitute, in themselves, a growing part of our intellectual, social, economic and cultural heritage. If this heritage is not to be squandered, strategies to ensure its long-term sustainability should be planned and implemented.
Principle 8 - Accessibility
Consideration should be given to the ways in which the outcomes of 3d visualisation work could contribute to the wider study, understanding, interpretation and management of cultural heritage assets.
