NFDI4Culture is the consortium within the Nationale Forschungsdateninfrastruktur (NFDI) that addresses research data on tangible and intangible cultural assets. We aim to establish a needs-based infrastructure for research data that serves our community of interest, ranging from architecture, art history and musicology to theatre, dance, film and media studies.
Wikibase plays an important role within the consortium as RDM (Research Data Management) software infrastructure. In this session, we will hear from representatives of Task Area 1 and 5 within the consortium. TA1 focuses on Data capture and enrichment of digital cultural assets, and within this task area we are developing a test use-case of Wikibase to structure data around 3D models and reconstructions of cultural assets. The TA1 team from the Open Science Lab at TIB Hannover will present the ongoing work to connect a Wikibase instance with the 3D-viewing and annotation software Kompakkt. This presentation will showcase the potential to extend the capabilities of Wikibase for cultural heritage preservation with additional open source software tools.
In the second part of the presentation, the team from FIZ Karlsruhe will present ongoing work within TA5, which focuses on building a Knowledge graph of research data within the 4Culture consortium. The TA5 team hosted two Wikibase workshops this year, and they will share some results of the workshops - particularly focusing on key requirements for further development. This presentation will also give an outlook on the planned use of knowledge graphs and Wikibase instances in further NFDI consortia.
The presentation looks at the use of Wikidata, Open Refine and related tools in the Data Science major of the Information Science bachelor's programme at Hannover University of Applied Sciences and Arts.
It gives insight into the tasks and contents of the modules, as well as the use of data from projects such as Coding da Vinci or NFDI4Culture. Examples of students' results from the previous semester and their further use in other contexts are introduced.
Furthermore, it will be discussed to what extent the practical involvement of students in OpenGLAM communities influences motivation and learning success.
