TAG (Touch Art Gallery) is a new app developed by Brown University in partnership with Microsoft Research. It allows museums, libraries, and other collectors to display collections of 2D artworks and manuscripts too large or too fragile to display, or otherwise inaccessible. Visitors will be able to explore high resolution images using Microsoft’s Deep Zoom technology, related material selected by the curator, and interactive tours authored in TAG itself.
Touch Art Gallery includes an authoring interface for museum curators and other content aggregators to compile and contextualize their content on a dedicated TAG server. Access to this interface (via the button in the lower left corner of the start page) is therefore limited to these individuals. If you wish to author and publish content in TAG, please contact us at [email protected] about setting up a TAG server on which you can access the authoring interface.
You can find out more about the Touch Art Gallery project. TAG 2.1 requires the most recent version of the TAG Server, which can be obtained from the Touch Art Gallery project page.
Download the app here from Windows Store for free.
