HYPERDOC project

logo-ministerio-ciencia-innovacion Sponsored by the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities (Grant PID2021-124446-NB100 financed by MICIU/AEI /10.13039/501100011033 and FEDER, UE), the HYPERDOC project is dedicated to analyzing and identifying inks and pigments within manuscripts and historical documents —an integral component of codicological studies. This initiative plays a pivotal role in enhancing our understanding of these manuscripts, thereby facilitating a comprehensive historical and artistic contextualization.slider-1

> Know more about the project

The HYPERDOC Project offers several key benefits.




We’ve created a publicly accessible database containing hyperspectral images and reflectance spectra. These have been carefully gathered from various materials found in historical documents, both in controlled laboratory samples and real historical documents we’ve studied during our project.


Software toolbox

We’ve developed a software toolbox for automated analysis using spectral images. This toolbox enables preliminary material composition analysis using various methods and includes rendering capabilities.


Preserve documents

Our commitment extends to digitally preserving historical documents by integrating spectral image data into their archives.


Collaborations made it possible

This project is a collaborative effort involving experts from the Department of Optics at the University of Granada, working alongside those responsible for historical archives in Granada.

We also have partners from the Department of Analytical Chemistry and the Group of Science and Culture of Heritage at UGR.
