Jatan and Darshak
Centre for Development for Advanced Computing (C-DAC), Pune, has developed a software named “Jatan” that is set to revolutionise museum experience. The objective was to make a digital imprint of all the objects preserved in museums. It will help researchers, curators and also people interested in the field.
C-DAC also developed Darshak is a mobile-based application. It allows real-time museum visitors gather all details about objects or artifacts simply by scanning a QR code placed near the object. This additional facility will help even the differently-abled visitors, information for whom can be made available in the form of audio or audio-visual formats.
