When the electronic records that you are trying to preserve are unique, complex, and storage-hungry, they will quickly put an institution's feet to the fire to come up with solutions. This has been the case for Utah, North Carolina, and Kentucky as we have tried to grapple with the needs and requirements of geospatial records in the grant-sponsored GeoMAPP project ( Much of what we have learned while studying geospatial records can be broadly applied to other types of electronic records. For instance, digitized images of the earth will have similar preservation requirements as documents that have been scanned, but with the added metadata needed to make sense of geospatial imagery. Geospatial data in the form of shapefiles or geodatabases also come with their own descriptive metadata, which must be captured along with the technical metadata, and reused for purposes of access and preservation. This session will focus on the nature of this metadata and the commonalities found with other types of electronic records, while we share the specific strategies and tools that we are developing. One such tool is an application created by the Utah State Archives, called the APPX-based Archives Enterprise Manager (AXAEM). This platform and database-independent open-source software is used to manage the entire workflow of the archives, and recent development has added the ability to ingest metadata of various types into the system and link it to the bibliographic data of series. A demonstration of this tool will be given.

  • The IS&T (digital) Archiving Conference offers a unique opportunity for imaging scientists and those working in the cultural heritage community (curators, archivists, librarians, photographers etc) from around the world to come together to discuss the most pressing issues related to the digital preservation and stewardship of hardcopy, and other cultural heritage documents and objects. Authors come from museums, archives, libraries, government institutions, industry and academia. Cutting edge topics related to multispectral and 3D imaging, as well as best practices for workflow, sharing, standards, and asset/collection management and dissemination are explored in papers presented at this annual, international event.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in pertuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
