How do existing practices for digital preservation apply to digital 3D data? What are current digital curation practices and how do they translate to 3D data? What guidance exists or is being developed to provide steps for forward migration and format longevity of 3D data? What is raw 3D data and how do we record digital provenance? How can we work around proprietary file formats? http://www.dpconline.org/handbook/technical-solutions-and-tools/file-formats-and-standards
What data should be kept over the long term? How does one track digital provenance? Should we track digital provenance? What constitutes a master/archival copy? What options are being evaluated for storage of large data sets “in perpetuity”? Cost/benefit analysis for storage solutions? What challenges are repositories facing with this data type? http://www.dpconline.org/handbook/digital-preservation/why-digital-preservation-matters
Examples of topics of interest- Why do we need metadata standards development? How are standards developed? Given the lack of agreed upon standards for 3D data, what solutions are institutions currently using? What are users’ needs regarding metadata? Who are the targeted users? What constitutes the minimal metadata for inclusion in a repository? How can linked metadata be developed for improved workflows. What would be required for data clean up or migration for previously unstandardized...
What is the current interpretation of copyright law to 3D Data in the U.S. and abroad, and is it appropriate? What can be learned from case studies of copyright from other media? Who owns the data? Who owns copyright on collaborative project data? What are strategies for negotiating agreements for content with limited rights due to permits or cultural sensitivity?
What platforms are being used to share 3D data? What challenges are repositories facing? In what state are users expecting 3D access? How is the lack of consistent metadata standards impacting the ability to share 3D data? How can linked metadata impact discoverability. Who are the targeted users?
