Another digitation result
24 July 2014
On-going work on the digitation of the Amsterdam Pipe Museum collection resulted this week in a new milestone. We reached the number of 115.000 unique photographs. Already at the beginning of the photo sessions, we concluded that one photo per object was enough to present the item, but was insufficient to inform users about the physical appearance of the item. So, next to both sides of the object, also details were photographed to be included in the database. In the meantime we have an average of four photo's per item on the website. It still is a miracle that the internet can provide all this information in a split second wherever in the world. With the number of over 115.000 photos the database of the Amsterdam Pipe Museum ranks among the major museums in the Netherlands.
