New partnership with The Field Museum yields exciting new content
Interspectral and The Field Museum, Chicago, are working together to create unique scientific content based on the museum’s collections. The result will be available to other Inside Explorer users. The new content, which will be available in early 2017, will initially include meteorites and fossilized insects in amber.
One of the meteorites that will be included in the collaboration is from the meteor explosion in Chelyabinsk district of Russia 2013. The meteor was the largest object to fall on Earth in almost 100 years, with an estimated mass of about 11,000 metric tons.
The Field Museum is one of the largest natural history collections in the world. The museum has a reputation for its high quality educational and scientific programmes, which makes it an ideal content partner for Interspectral.
“By making parts of The Field Museums collections available to existing and future customers, we have added a new dimension to the Inside Explorer experience. Our ambition to build and maintain a database of educative digital content will erase geographical limitations, distributing knowledge and research findings to the public.”Richard Bremer, Business Developer at Interspectral
Interspectral has had a long relationship with The Field Museum and has successfully delivered several visualisation solutions and services for permanent, temporary and travelling exhibitions created for The Field Museum.
The extended collaboration is part of Interspectrals ongoing work to establish partnerships with leading researchers and organisations, continuously making new fascinating content available for Interspectral’s Inside Explorer users. It also allows the public much wider access to collections through exhibitions that use the shared content.
The first Inside Explorer user to benefit from the collaboration outside of The Field Museum will be the Nobel Museum. The museum is opening an temporary exhibition in Dubai February 2017, titled Exploring Matter, which is covering the Nobel Prize in Physics. This is the second exhibition or a series of exhibitions in Dubai that Interspectral provided 4 Inside Explorer tables.
