CHIMER

The project focused on developing and working different tools that encouraged European schoolchildren to participate in building a living view of the cultural heritage of their villages, towns and regions.
01 / 2002 - 12 / 2004

Description

CHIMER aimed to deliver fully multimedia information not only via Web portals but also via mobile portals offering location-based services.

The project aimed to establish the European Cultural Heritage Archive based on an open platform. The project will combine available Internet, GPS (Global Positioning System), GPRS (General Packet Radio Service), WI-FI (Wireless Fidelity) and GIS (Geographic Information Systems) technologies in order to develop interfacing and user access tools adapted to evolving 3G (Third Generation) networked multimedia technology for retrieving local heritage from 6 partner countries.

CHIMER aims to offer a model which in the future can be replicated in other networks, not only in the area of cultural information but also, for example, for public sector information, health and cultural tourism, based on the use of digital vector cartography linked to multimedia databases. The Chimer Project is developing and implementing applications for Mobile Technologies in a cultural heritage environment based on a combination of GPS and GIS technologies. A GIS platform serving multimedia information to multiple hand-held devices is being implemented. Device Portability is a key point in the CHIMER Project.
