aLTAG3D ( A Long Term Archive Generator for 3D) is an open source software developped by the consortium "3D for Humanities" for the generation of long-term archive of 3D projects.


The main feature of aLTAG3D is generating a suitable archive for the CINES, which implies other features such as adding files in the archive and entering metadata at different levels. The archive thus produced is ready to be delivered to the CINES, without any added processing. Another important feature is to generate an information report on the archive, in PDF or HTML format, summarizing information collected via aLTAG3D.

User Experiences

aLTAG3D is now fully operational. It is tested and approved by the Consortium "3D for Humanities" as a complete solution for generating 3D archives. Archives produced by aLTAG3D had been successfully accepted by the CINES.

The tool has been tested in 2016 during the PARTHENOS workshop which the aim to promote and contribute to best practices, especially in the sharing, publication and preservation of 3D data in order to promote their interoperability and sustainability.The workshop has been a good opportunity to submit the tool to a discerning public composed by 16 participants from 15 institutions in 9 countries with various profiles. On this occasion, some points for improvements have been made and corrected since.
