ViSIT - cultural heritage networked.
Potentials of virtual network systems for museums

This was the title of the closing symposium of ViSIT, organized by the University of Passau on Saturday, 28 September 2019. The event was open to the public - free of charge - and addressed both experts and stakeholders as well as the interested general public as target groups. The programme was divided into two parts and focused on museums.

In the morning, an introduction to ViSIT took place at the University of Passau, with an overview of "Networked Knowledge" and a presentation of the ViSIT App Framework. This was followed by inspiring lectures from renowned museum experts: Prof. Monika Hagedorn-Saupe (Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz/Institut für Museumsforschung: Europäische Projekte; Projektleitung AAT®-Deutsch; Board ICOM Europe, Chair of CIDOC) spoke on the topic of "Networking Museum Information". The computer scientist Mark Fichtner (Germanisches Nationalmuseum Nuremberg, Deputy Head of Department Museum and Cultural Informatics; focus: Semantic knowledge processing and presentation; software system WissKI) showed how "Networking from Small to Large" can function on and between museums.

In the afternoon, an excursion to the Veste Oberhaus was on the agenda, starting with an introduction to the ViSIT observation tower. Afterwards there was a guided tour through the otherwise inaccessible historical attic, where ViSIT results of building research on building history were presented. The event ended with a demonstration of 3D digitisation and a presentation of the ViSIT online presence.
