User portal

The user portal is an integral part of the INDIGO platform. In the administrator part of the curator’s system, they handle museum items and create documentation, and on the user portal they publish created records of objects through virtual museum collections and exhibitions. After expert processing of objects and joining photos of high-resolution items, the process of publishing records on the user portal is very simple. The person from the museum who is in charge of publishing the records completely publishes articles and collections independently. Since publishing materials are largely automated, museum staff can publish individual records or entire collections depending on the degree of readiness and readiness of the records. After the release of the record on the portal, the records are ready to aggregate and send data in Europe.
