The USF Libraries strive to be at the center of 21st century learning and research. Our Digital Heritage & Humanities Collections (DHHC) initiative is a driving force in our mission, using sophisticated spatial technologies to digitally document the world around us, and create opportunities to enhance teaching, research, and creativity. As our new GIS Project Manager, Ben Mittler will advance our mission.
The USF Libraries DHHC is partnering with two global leaders in 3D heritage documentation, CyArk and Historic Environment Scotland, to form the Open Heritage Alliance (OHA) and Open Heritage 3D, a repository of 3D digital heritage datasets. Their partnership is supported by Google Arts & Culture, who are transforming their projects into 3D interactive journeys, including the DHHC’s Apollo 1 Memorial at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
