Medici 2 Content Management System

E-mail Print

 

Medici is a Web 2.0 environment integrating analysis tools for the auto-curation of un-curated digital data, allowing automatic processing of input datasets, and visualization of both data and collections. It offers a simple user interface for dataset preprocessing, previewing, automatic metadata extraction, user input of metadata and provenance support, storage, archiving and management, representation and reproduction.

 

Building on previous experience (Medici 1), the US National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), and the Cyprus Institute have worked towards the improvement of the technical, performance and functionality aspects of the system. The current version of Medici (Medici 2) is the result of these efforts. It is a scalable, flexible, robust distributed framework with wide data format support (including 3D models and Reflectance Transformation Imaging-RTI) and metadata functionality.

 

Medici 2 is open source. Its code, constantly updated, can be found at
