PICTIVA was initiated in part as a response to the Visual Arts Data Service (VADS) user survey of 1998 that identified a number of problems affecting use of online resources. These included a lack of knowledge about what was available or the perceived lack of relevance of online resources to academic users as well as a lack of time to engage with new technologies. The project is a partnership between the VADS based at the Surrey Institute of Art & Design, University College and the Institute for Image Data Research (IIDR) based at the University of Northumbria at Newcastle. The tools and systems development will be done with the help of Systems Simulations Ltd (SSL). PICTIVA aims to promote the use of online image collections in learning and teaching in the visual arts by developing a range of generic tools to support access to the images and targeted materials to support their use. The usability of the VADS image database will be improved by providing ease of access to, and navigation of, the image collections held by VADS. The specific objectives are to: Develop tools that will include tutorials on how to use the site effectively as well as look at how the VADS search and retrieval systems can be improved. It will also feature a trial of contents-based image retrieval which will allow users to search VADS images on visual aspects rather than text descriptors; Produce learning and teaching materials based on the collections held by VADS, giving contextual information as well as recognising and incorporating good practice in the design of online learning and teaching resources; Produce case studies which will detail how they have been used in the context of real learning and teaching situations. Project start date: 2000-03-01. Project end date: 2002-07-31. (Excerpt from this source)
