A museum collection, an archive or a collection of natural history material contains within it unique knowledge, connections and stories. By organizing, linking and making accessible a collection in a sustainable manner, you can generate new insights and ideas, astonish people and help them learn new things.
Picturae is upgrading the successful Memorix Maior.
In developing Memorix, we use the following principles.
We believe that managing a collection is part of a larger process. We design Memorix based on the idea of the ‘Digitization Journey’, which is to say that we see sustainable collection management as an important step on the route to maximum impact.
Instead of isolated collections, we make a collection part of a worldwide network of collections and information. Objects in Memorix are described so that they are findable, readable and understandable to third parties. Linked to shared terms, concepts and thesauri. Linked data by design.
Smart people have been working for many years to develop standards and guidelines in the realm of heritage (and specifically digital heritage) and collection management. There is no need to reinvent the wheel; we use successful and proven standards.
The digital revolution is in full swing. We choose proven innovations that make managing and enriching your collection easier and increase impact. We do this with the help of machine learning, image recognition and handwriting recognition.
We want users to like working with Memorix. Being able to use the platform on mobile devices goes without saying and Memorix is accessible wherever you can go online. The work processes for managing collections are supported and users have the ability to work together. Of course we give you a clear insight into statistics and reach.
Memorix is developed on the basis of open source technology and current software development principles. Kotlin (functional style) is the basis on which we build. We opted for an event-driven architecture and Gitlab, Kubernetes, CI. Our team works together to get better. Pair programming and code reviews are not vague ambitions but part of our daily work.
