Authors: Martin Schaller, Sven Schlarb, and Kristin Dill In the SCAPE Project, the memory institutions are working on practical application scenarios for the tools and solutions developed within the project. One of these application scenarios is the migration of a large image collection from one format to another. There are many reasons why such a […]

These have been two busy days in Den Haag where Carl Wilson from the OPF tries to show us how to use tools in order to have clean environments and well-behave installation procedures that will "always" work.   The use of vagrant (connected to the appropriate provider, in our experimental case VirtualBox) allows to start […]

As previously blogged about by Carl we now have virtually all SCAPE and OPF projects in Continuous Integration; building and unit testing in both Travis CI and Jenkins.  Travis compiles the projects and executes unit tests whenever a new commit is pushed to Github, or when a pull request is submitted to the project.  Jenkins […]

From time to time people ask me about the status of the issues that are mentioned in that paper, so here’s a long overdue update. Issues addressed in the 2011 paper The […]

About a year ago, work started on packaging SCAPE tools. Jpylyzer was the first SCAPE tool that was turned into a Debian package. Some time later, the OPF set up a couple of machine images at Amazon Web Services, which can be used to create packages repeatedly using a virtual machine. Even though I’ve used […]

As part of our work on test-beds for the SCAPE project we have been investigating the various ways in which a large scale file format migration workflow could be implemented.  The underlying technologies chosen for the platform are Hadoop and Taverna.  One of the aims of the SCAPE project is to allow the automatic generation […]

I've already written a number of blog posts on format validation of JP2 files. Format validation is only a one aspect of a quality assessment workflow. Digitisation guidelines typically impose various constraints on the technical characteristics of preservation and access images. For example, they may state that a preservation master must be losslessly compressed, and […]

A few months ago I wrote a blog post on a simple JP2 file structure checker. This led to some interesting online discussions on JP2 validation. Some people asked me about the feasibility of expanding the tool to a full-fledged JP2 validator. Despite some initial reservations, I eventually decided to dedicate a couple of weeks […]
