The IT-Department in the German Archaeological Institute DAI announces a call for applications to participate in an online course in “Cultural Heritage Documentation with Smartphone cameras”. The course will take place from 29 March to 2 April 2021. It is aimed at young professionals from the MENA region and is free of charge.
The course „Cultural Heritage Documentation with Smartphone Cameras“ is the second of 12 online courses and will take place from 29 March to 2 April 2021. Smartphone integrated digital cameras offer an easy and qualitative way to document cultural heritage sites and archaeological excavations as well as damages on sites. However, it requires some knowledge and skills to produce good images and manage thousands of photos. During this 5-day training we will answer questions dealing with smartphone cameras, their usage and application in documenting cultural heritage, as well as the management of the images.
The focus groups of the online courses are early-career experts from the MENA region specialized in archeology, architecture, history and other related disciplines.
Date: March 29- April 2 2021
Location: Online (via Zoom) – a computer and a good internet connection are required
Application Deadline: March 19
The new project “Online courses for the MENA region” starts as part of the programme “KulturGutRetter – An emergency mechanism for cultural heritage in crisis situations”, which is currently being developed by the DAI.
