Updated information in the course of the meeting is in color. Every participant is welcome to add and adapt.


  • OpenAtlas: Alexander Watzinger, Bernhard Koschiček-Krombholz, Christoph Hoffmann
  • ARCHE: Martina Trognitz, Massimiliano Carloni
  • ACDH-CH: Daniel Schopper, Matej Ďurčo

This meeting is about the workflow between OpenAtlas and ARCHE for the INDIGO project.


  • Introductions
  • Public protocol (register at Redmine to edit)
  • New ACDH-CH server, move of the OpenAtlas INDIGO instance probably in January 2022
  • Next INDIGO meeting 2022-01-28

Media files

  • It is planned that media files (which can be quite large and many) are uploaded directly into ARCHE, is this still the current strategy?
  • How do we get information that is already included in media files (e.g. timestamp and geographic data) to OpenAtlas?
  • How will they be connected to OpenAtlas where metadata will be added
    • ARCHE will store the original and orthorectified image files, enriched with metadata (e.g. IPTC)
    • OpenAtlas will use the orthorectified images, metadata from ARCHE and visualization over IIIF
    • INDIGO team can only annotate images after the process of ingestion of ARCHE is complete
    • ARCHE <--> OpenAtlas, OpenAtlas will use the ARCHE API to get the metadata
    • Mapping SKOS <--> CIDOC CRM (OpenAtlas has a strict hierarchy 1:n and no language feature)


  • Workflow initial
  • How to sync later
    • OpenAtlas types can have file links for vocabularies
    • Vocabs will be connected as external references in OpenAtlas
    • For now, the INDIGO works on the vocabulary, which will be later imported into VOCABS and then to OpenAtlas
    • It is still open how we synchronize data later
