email@example.com http://jnul.huji.ac.il MOSAICAVISIONUse technology to conceptually model cultural heritageBase consumption on conceptual models – on knowledgeUse technology to allow storytelling – narrativesCombine multiple (distributed) resources to provide an exhaustive insight into the domain of discourseUse technology to provide thrill
firstname.lastname@example.org http://jnul.huji.ac.il MOSAICAPractical ImplicationsNot “yellow pages” for other websitesElementary resources from which a narrative can be created (as opposed to composite resources such as HTML pages, MS Word documents, etc.)Facility to create narratives (Virtual Expedition)Facilities for collaborative editing:Online ontology editorSemantic AnnotatorVirtual Expedition EditorPublishing in user groupsStructured authorization (Board of Editors)

firstname.lastname@example.org http://jnul.huji.ac.il MOSAICAWhere are we now?Got all basic technologies togetherDevelop a robust architectural designMap resources, prepare use of resources, set the foundations of conceptual modeling(Learn the problems typical for the entire domain of discourse through hands-on experience – devise generic solutions)Understand how conceptual modeling can be transformed into narrativesSetup the initial toolbox
email@example.com http://jnul.huji.ac.il MOSAICAFully develop the conceptual model for the selected domain of discourseIntegrate various technologies into a single delivery frameworkConsolidate Virtual Expedition methodology into mature technology through hands-on experienceComplete the toolboxImprove GIS/TIS (semantic enhancement), deploy P2P infrastructureProvide the thrillIntegrate resources, resources and more resourcesUnderstand how to do businessVision for the future: "Each reader/viewer/ can become a creator/editor/reviewer and can feed their contribution back to the media space"

15WP 1 ObjectivesTo identify Web based resources in Jewish cultural heritage.To identify resources in Jewish cultural heritage suitable for GIS.To negotiate access to the resources in Jewish cultural heritage with the content owners, and resolve the corresponding IPR issues.To populate MOSAICA ontology with selected resources in Jewish cultural heritage.To define methodology and specify interface for dynamic, online access to multiple, distributed resources in Jewish cultural heritage
16Criteria for Selection of Web-based Resources in Jewish Heritage CULTUREUnesco definition in the Universal Declaration of Cultural DiversityQUALITYAccuracy, Clarity, MotivationGRANULARITYIntermediate level, enough to identify resource as within the scopeGISResources which include a coordinate system or can easily be so represented.Guidelines for Entering Resources
17CULTURE – based on Unesco Definition Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity (2002)Express the distinctive spiritual, material, intellectual and emotional features of European Jewry (... Catalonian, Celtic, Roma, Muslim... ), and that it encompasses, in addition to art and literature, lifestyles, ways of living together, value systems, traditions and beliefs.It should be of interest to a diversified European public broadly composes from different nationalities, ethnic origins, linguistic and religious affiliations.
18QUALITY Criterion ACCURACY CLARITY MOTIVATION The resource should be reliable, valid and produced by a trusted source; information should be impartially presented; resource must not contain biases, mistakes or omissions.CLARITYThere should be a clear tie between the resource and European Jewish Culture (... Catalonia, Roma, Scots, Muslims...Culture ). Correlation should be comprehensive and obvious.MOTIVATIONThe resource should achieve the active engagement of the user and be interesting and appealing.
19GRANULARITY Criterion Intermediate level of granularityThe resources should be content chunks large just enough so as to be easily identified as being related to the intended content area.They may be pages, video clips, text, sound and music files that clearly can be identified and described as of European Jewish Culture (... Catalonian, Celtic, Roma, Muslim... ) interest.
20Adequacy for GIS Criterion ... _strive to include a significant share of resources which include a coordinate system which references a particular place on earth.Alternatively, resources which include clear geographical specifications that are easily amenable to representation by a coordinate system will be selected.
