Contributor(s): AMAT, Anna | GIOVANNI BRUNETTI, Brunetto | MILIANI, CostanzaMaterial type: ArticleArticleDescription: 8 pISBN: 1296-2074Subject(s): Cultural heritage | Espectroscòpia | In situ | Management | Maneig | Manejo | Patrimoni Cultural | Patrimonio Cultural | Software | Spectroscopy In: Journal of Cultural Heritage 3 14 1, 23-30Abstract: The main advantage of a multi-technique non-invasive artwork investigations relies on the use of different spectroscopic techniques that give rise to complementary information. Despite the artworks complexity, this approach allows great insight into the artwork composition and alteration phases. However, difficulties arise form the great amount of heterogeneus interconnected data that has to be stored for a prompt analysis and preserved. A suitable tool to handle and analyse all the information on the fly is therefore crucial to optimize work, specially in situ investigations. In this paper we present MOVIDA, a new tool for the data management and analysis of non-invasive investigations in the Cultural Heritage field that not only allows the digital preservation of all the information and knowledge, but can also be used as an analytical tool while the investigation is being developed. The software can be installed on any computer to record, elaborate and analyse the data on-the-spot. All the data generated can be managed within the same application and the information can be easily consulted, compared and related to the corresponding areas of the artwork. The software is self-comprehensive and user-friendly and can be used by all the professionals involved in the investigastion and preservation of Cultural Heritage whatever their background and computer skills are.
