About Scalar

About Scalar

Scalar is a digital exhibition tool that presents your exhibit like a book. Scalar projects, or "books," are nonlinear and networked, allowing you to create curated paths through your exhibit. Multimedia functions enable embedded images, audio, and clips which can then be annotated or given descriptive metadata. Scalar is a project of the Alliance for Networking Visual Culture.
