Most of the Work WCS does is bespoke and does not result in applications suitable for resale.
This page however, details those WCS applications which are currently available as standalone products.
In conjunction with software provider Archlife
we have written and maintain a number of applications targeted at users of high resolution archive
quality cameras and smaller archives using high-quality digital cameras.
Many of these applications were created in collaboration with ICAM Archive Systems
who manufacture and supply unique archive capture systems with which our software is often distributed.
- Used by local archives and historical societies to standardise acquisitions.
Simple interface to a hierarchical database of collections and items.
Public View mode to allow read-only access to the collections.
Powerful Search and browse functions.
Links to Archangel and Arcapture for viewing and capturing digital surrogates.
- Used to embed and supplement standardised image metadata with csv files.
