gta Digital
Main Areas of Research

The gta Digital is dedicated to advanced digital research methods and technology in the history and theory of architecture. It specialises on semantic data modelling, semantic data transformation, and the development of state-of-the-art research methods and research environments for the institutes own research projects, collection data, and its public research portals.

Its main focus concentrates on open, scholarly acknowledged, yet extendable concept reference models for cultural heritage, such as the CIDOC-CRM. Entirely based on internationally established standards for data storage and exchange (such as OWL, RDF, RDF-S, SKOS), gta Digital provides domain-specific, state-of-the-art research environments that allow researchers to gain access to the global linked data network.
