    I. Who we are - Introducing the cluster

The Heritage Cluster is a French competitiveness Cluster founded in 2007 in Arles (France) and dedicated to the promotion of culture and heritage. The Cluster brings together more than a hundred companies, organizations, foundations, R&D laboratories, training and resources centers mainly situated in Provence and involved in: preserving, restoring, and promoting heritage, whether it is natural, built, cultural (movable) or intangible.

As an economic network the cluster organizes special events for its members enhancing cross-disciplinary partnerships, and provides organizational support in their respective range of expertise. It also provides support in monitoring and implementing innovative projects, particularly in the digital area, in order to respond to Bids for Tenders in the Research and Development sector.

   III. How we do it – a panel of 6 collaborative innovative digital projects on heritage

Didier Happe, Associated CEO of Art Graphique et Patrimoine (France) and Romain Raffin, Assistant Professor in Computer Science at the LSIS Research Unit will be presenting Ephèbe, a project on the 12th century Saint-Trophime Cloister (inscribed as World Heritage at UNESCO) based on the use of a 3D mock-up for the development of a 3D-referenced document data base on the Internet and a presentation film to the public involving also the Heritage Dpt of the City of Arles.

Frédérique Bertrand, DPLG Architect specialized in modeling and computer graphics applied to architecture and urban design, Marseille (France), will be presenting Imago Urbis, a virtual augmented-reality sensitive visit of urban and natural heritage sites.

Bruno Roux, founder and associate CEO of L’Avion Jaune, Montpellier (France), will be presenting Yellowscan, a compact and light LIDAR for aerial topography. A LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) can be installed in an airplane to obtain ground and canopy topography; it may apply for instance to archeology and forest management. The Yellowscan project consists in proposing a very small and light LiDAR (2kg) suitable for a UAV or an ultra-light airplane.

Nathalie Casanova, Project Manager at the Conservation Center for Book, Arles (France), will be presenting E-corpus - a collective and heritage-centered digital library which indexes and disseminates numerous documents belonging to the Euro-Mediterranean written and linguistic heritage: manuscript pages, antique books, archives, newspapers, photography, maps, prints, sound recordings, and videos. To this day, E-corpus offers direct access to more than two million documents, available through cooperation with more than 250 institutions worldwide. Based on cutting edge technologies, E-corpus offers a simple multimedia and multilingual interface.

Frédéric Mougenot, Curator and Karine Bonjour, Head of Digital Dpt at the the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations (MuCEM), along with Isabelle Aubin and Julien Deparis, CEO and Director of Studies at Supinfocom Arles (France) and Marc Rius CEO of Tu Nous ZA Pas Vus Production, Arles (France) will be presenting Wonders of the world, 7 animated films created by Supinfocom Arles’ 4th-year students through an educational partnership with the MuCEM and produced by Tu Nous ZA Pas Vus Production. History have been reinterpreted through a scientific approach of documentation, reinventing archeological approach and changing the audience relationship to museums through artistic computer-generated images.

Marie Cambone, PhD candidate in Information and Communication Sciences at the University of Avignon (France) and in Museum Sciences at the University of Quebec in Montréal (Canada), will be presenting her research work Writing stories on interactive maps: Take over the city and become heritage, aimed at analysing interactive cultural maps through an innovative methodology. These maps bear a common objective of cultural mediation of urban spaces and result mostly from visiting experiences shared online (each user adding photos, videos, comments, etc).
