Linked Heritage is a 30 month EU project, started on 1st April 2011 and ended the 30th September 2013.
The main goals were: 1) to contribute large quantities of new content to Europeana, from both the public and private sectors; 2) to demonstrate enhancement of quality of content, in terms of metadata richness, re-use potential and uniqueness; 3) to demonstrate enable improved search, retrieval and use of Europeana content.
The consortium includes representatives of all the key stakeholder groups from 20 EU countries, together with Israel and Russia: among them ministries and responsible government agencies, content providers and aggregators, leading research centres, publishers and SMEs.

GEOCODED DIGITAL CULTURAL CONTENT (PDF, 2731 kb)
This new book Geocoded Digital Cultural Content, edited by Franc J. Zakrajsek and Vlasta Vodeb focuses on Geographic location, which is a very important attribute of a cultural heritage item. It can describe provenience, the current institution, as well as the location of the event or other related events. The added value of the geo-coded cultural content is in the browsing of cultural portals efficiently through space and time, and searching for content in a more user friendly way. This work is a result of a strong cooperation between Linked Heritage and the INDICATE project, a concluded European Union FP7 project which aimed to establish a network of common interest made up of experts and researchers in the field of e-infrastructures and digital cultural heritage at Euro Mediterranean level.
