Indian Digital Heritage : Workshop & Exhibition

Indian Digital Heritage is an unique initiative of the Department of Science & Technology (DST), Government of India supporting collaborative projects between researchers in the areas of Technology and Humanities for the digital documentation and interpretation of our tangible and intangible heritage. The project highlights the art, architecture and cultural legacy of the world heritage site of Hampi in Karnataka, the medieval capital of the Vijaynagara dynasty.

A workshop and exhibition took place on the 18th and 19th November 2014 at the India Habitat Centre, Delhi to showcase some of the outcomes of this novel experiment. The workshop will have academic presentations on new scientific findings.
