The “Virtual Museum and Cultural Object Exchange Format“ (ViMCOX) is an XML-based metadata set to describe virtual museums. It adopts elements from existing metadata standards and proposes extensions for vivid exhibition design, such as

  • Exhibition design and room arrangements
  • Outdoorareas
  • Illumination
  • Multimedia
  • Assets (Windows, Partitionwalls, Furniture, Plants)
  • User centered aspects (user to object interaction, dynamic or animated objects as well as Points Of Interest POIs)

In the visualization layer, ViMCOX based files are used as configuration file for 3D exhibition space generation. The latest version of ViMCOX can be downloaded here.
