Catherine is succeeded in her Collections Development Manager role by Louisa Matthews. At ADS Louisa will be responsible for managing our expert team of digital archivists, and developing our collections.

ADS 3D Viewer
ADS 3D Viewer is a two year project funded under the Marie Curie Actions Seventh Framework Programme, and benefits from the collaboration with the Italian Visual Computing Lab in the framework of the ARIADNE European Project. The aim of the ADS 3D Viewer project is to develop an interactive 3D web based working environment for the management and analysis of archaeological data within the ADS website infrastructure, for all kinds of users, including those who are unfamiliar with these technologies.The 3D viewer not only offers users the possibility to interact with and analyse the 3D model in the 3D window embedded in the web-page of the project, but also in full-screen mode using a trackball and different features....read more here.

Polynomial Texture Mapping (PTM) is a fairly new technique employed by archaeologists and it has furthered research at a well-known Brazilian rock art site, Avencal 1, revealing details not previously detected. An article outlining the work has just been published in Internet Archaeology and it contains an interactive viewer which enables readers to explore the rock art panels for themselves, including altering lighting conditions....read more here.
The ADS is currently a partner in three major European projects, and all are well on their way. We have passed the midpoints for the three-year LoCloud project and the four-year ARIADNE project. We are also now in year two of our five-year NEARCH project. It's been a lot of hard work for us and for our wonderful partners, but we are starting to see results....read more here.
