These examples have been selected from the data
that was submitted in the test process. No favourtism intended; we
were looking for imaging challenges, and examples of wide-ranging
documentation. If you would like to make an example to be included,
feel free! Email jennifer
when you are ready to have the files linked into the web site.
Note about Text Records: We have tried
not to alter content at all in the mapping of what was submitted to
the data dictionary. As a result, some of the required fields are
missing, and the formats are not correct in the examples below.
Questions about Text Records:
- What should be searchable? Look at the list
of fields on the Data Dictionary format examples, and make your
- How much information should be on the public
web site? Choose fields from the Data Dictionary that should always
or never be on the public web site.
A note about Images: No attempt was made
to minimize file sizes when these images were created, so they may
download slowly. There is some fine tuning to do that takes time.
Look now at the resolutions recommended. The files were sampled using
PhotoShop 4.0 on a Power Macintosh 8500. No colour correction or cropping
was done. All derivative images were created from the original source
file. These were TIFF files, for all but the Art Institute of Chicago
Mummy, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (where the source
was PICT). Full metadata for these files can be found linked to the
Technical Operations Committee Page.
Questions about Images:
to the AMICO Home Page.
- Please look at the two sizes of thumbnails
and voice your opinion about which size is correct for the public
version of AMICO images.
- The Henry Moore example includes thumbnails
sampled from the both the orignial TIFF file and the screen-size
JPEG. There are questions about quality vs processing time that
we may want to discuss. The TIFF-source image is better, but takes
about 10 times longer to produce.
