A necessary step forward in teaching heritage disciplines is introduction of more advanced methods and techniques in data computation in virtually all domains of their practice. For this reason, the intensive course in data comuptation is planned for the students of all partner universities.

           The course will include the following topics:

  • understanding databases and datasets in heritage sciences (logic and structure of SQL and non-SQL databases, datafication),
  • spatial data and spatial statistics (digital representations of space, statistics of spatial distributions, urban computing),
  • computational modeling (e.g. 3D modeling and simulations),
  • potentials of Big data in heritage disciplines (Big data vs. sampling, predicting trends vs. accuracy of description, velocity of data).

           The course will be held in computing classroom where each student will practically work on the assigned project from the pre-prepared datasets. Students will master: basic techniques of creating and using databases, integrating databases, database analysis and transformations, GIS-based spatial statistics, understanding the role of 3D modeling in analysis, interpretation, and presentation of heritage objects (artefacts, architecture, sites, landscapes), and discuss the issues of Big data in heritage disciplines.

           The course will be held at the University of Ljubljana.

           After it’s conclusion, the course will be modified to be used as webinar.
