JISC 3D Visualisation in the Arts Network by Hugh Denard

The 3D Visualisation in the Arts Network was established in May 2006. 3DVisA is part of the UK Visualisation Support Network funded by the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) and hosted by King’s Visualisation Lab in the Centre for Computing in the Humanities, King's College, London. The Network exists to support those interested or actively engaged in the creation and use of digital 3D visualisations in Arts and Humanities contexts by conducting targeted research, creating opportunities for community–wide debate of key issues, widening understanding of methods and standards, and facilitating the exchange of skills and knowledge. 3DVisA comprises Richard Beacham (Director) and Hugh Denard (Director and Manager) Anna Bentkowska–Kafel (Research Fellow) and Julie Tolmie (Network Development Officer).

The launch of the Network at the Digital Resources for the Humanities and Arts (DRHA) Conference in Dartington, Devon, UK, on 3 September 2006 will be followed by a series of events and activities, details of which will be announced on our website and posted to the VISA-3D list. 3DVisA also provides the Secretariat for The London Charter, a proposed international benchmark for the use of 3–dimensional visualisation in the research and communication of cultural heritage which is now open to consultation.

The Network is currently carrying out a survey of 3D projects and soliciting views on the needs of the 3D visualisation community. Your participation, comments and suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
