Glossary term References

This term can be used for content, software or hardware of a virtual museum. Any of those components is reusable when it can be utilized in a different VM with no need to rebuild or redevelop this component 

Deliverable 2.1. 2014.
Re-usable Virtual Museum

a Virtual Museum which is fully or partially re-usable in other digital applications. Since a Virtual Museum, in the Digital Heritage domain, is a combination of digital content, software and hardware, the kind of re-usability might regard one or all those elements

Deliverable 2.1. 2014.
Re-usable VM installation

Re-usability of setups: software and hardware solutions

Deliverable 2.1. 2014.
Re-usable VM multimedia dataset

Metadata containing level of accuracy, type of MM data, reliability, communication channel for which they are built, type of license, datasets are preserved in some sort of repository, accessible and visible to some users.

Deliverable 2.1. 2014.
Re-usable VM pipeline

Virtual Museums that have preserved their creative, digital pipeline (i.e. containing the process that have led to the creation of the VM, storyboard, data connection to the story, etc.)

Real-time 3D

in Computer Graphics, Real-time 3D is concerned with producing and analyzing 3D scenes in real time, frame by frame depending on the user input, using the Graphics Processing Unit. Real-time 3D is a very important aspect in applications like video games where user interaction in running time is an important part of deciding what to be drawn.

Reconstructed Model

A 3D model that has been created based on the shape and appearance of a real object. The reconstruction is done either by technological means as 3D scanning (see [Sampled Model]) or by scientific data such as architectural designs and reference images.

Remote Visualization

means interactive viewing of scientific data sets over the web. Because scientific data sets are in the gigabyte size range, it is difficult to send the entire data set over the network. Extraction, processing, network latency and rendering add up and make the proposition of near real-time interactive visualization a challenge. Moreover, the client will have a limited amount of memory and CPU power for viewing and interacting with the data

Research Virtual Museum

VM applications that are meant to support and enhance research. It also includes applications that, due to their innovative character, may sustain research in other related fields such as: ICT, augmented reality, Artificial intelligence, Virtual Worlds and Serious Games, Geography etc…The considered applications are often prototypes and demos endowed with specific innovative functionalities and can cover specific issues
