An Audiovisual Corpus of Guided Tours in Cultural Sites: Data Collection protocols in the CHROME Project.

In this work, we present the data collection and annotation protocols adopted for the ongoing creation of the reference material to be used in the Cultural Heritage Resources Orienting Multimodal Experiences (CHROME) project to accomplish that goal.
Cultural Heritage (CH) is a challenging domain of application for novel Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), where visualization plays a major role in enhancing visitors' experience, either onsite or online. Technology-supported natural human-computer interaction is a key factor in enabling access to CH assets. Advances in ICT ease visitors to access collections online and better experience CH onsite. The range of visualization devices - from tiny smart watch screens and wall-size large situated public displays to the latest generation of immersive head-mounted displays - together with the increasing availability of real-time 3D rendering technologies for online and mobile devices and, recently, Internet of Things (IoT) approaches, require exploring how they can be applied successfully in CH. Following the successful workshop at AVI 2016 and the large numbers of recent events and projects focusing on CH and, considering that 2018 has been declared the European Year of Cultural Heritage, the goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in presenting and discussing the potential use of state-of-the-art advanced visual interfaces in enhancing our daily CH experience.
