This page show information on what is a Media and how to compile it.

What is a Media?

A Media is a multimedia element inside the POI/en.

We can imagine the POI as a picture book. The storytelling is composed of photos or videos with brief captions.

The pages of this book - Media and News - must be ordered in Chapters (Context, History, Architecture, etc.) in order to obtain an interesting and effective story.



Short sentence or word to describe the presented video or image.

The title appears on the POI dossier followed by other Media's titles, in order to create a sort of index of the whole story of the POI. To obtain the effect of a storytelling, you should keep in mind that the order of the Chapters is mandatory (see #Chapters) and that you can reorder Media inside each chapter (see #Order in Chapters).


Subdivision to organize the story of the POI, equal to the organization of the chapters of a book.

To create an ordered storytelling of the POI, Media are assigned to established Chapters: News, Presentation, Context, Places, History, Architecture, Projects, events, Details, Stories, Extra materials. The order of the Chapters is fixed, Media, instead, could be organized inside the chapters (see POI guide: Types of visualization).

Link to POI

Name of the POI in which is inserted the Media or the News.

You must link the Media to a POI. Media or News can be linked to more than one POI.


Text related to image or video.

The content should refer to image or to the video, keeping in mind that it will be read as a paragraph of the whole story of the POI. Each text should explain as that particular Media or News adds something special to the whole story. Try to avoid repetition or too specialistic insights (for those you can add the link to the website).

Suggested length 500 digits spaces included. Maximum 800 digits.

Language botton

To add the description in other languages: available in Italiano, English, Français, 中文 so far.


Brief text referred to Media description and its content.

(Example: image title, clarification on the photo's angle, etc.)

Suggested length 100 digits spaces included. Maximum 150 digits.

Add Tag

Add Tag

Insertion of some keywords to characterize the element and eventually link it to others. The operation is facilitated by the suggestion of existing Tag when you start to digit a name, but you can also create new ones.


Multimedia File

The Multimedia file is the fundamental content of Media and News.

If it is an image, a video, an audio file, a PDF text, use the button Upload, which opens a specific window. Otherwise, if you want to use a video on Youtube you should use the sharing code generated by Youtube. Through the function "Upload preview" you can add a preview image of the video.

Type of file

Technical characteristics that must be satisfied are:


Suggested format
*.jpg, *.png
Standard dimention
relation 4:3 (e.g. 1000x750 pixel)
max. 200 dpi
max. 500 KB.


Suggested solution
link to a Youtube video (preferably on your own channel), for which you should insert the sharing code.
For example, if the sharing code is you should insert only nvKrc7u17Yk.
It is also possible to directly insert little videos (max 10 MB)
Suggested format
*.mp4, *.mpeg, *.ogg, *webm
Standard dimension
format 16:9 e 720p (1280x720) if short (about 1 minute); 4x3 with 640x480 pixel if longer.


Suggested format

Slideshow/Highlight visualization

If you choose "highlight" you should insert a media important for the POI story; in the POI dossier, there will automatically be a preview of the image and the first sentence of the text.

If you choose "slideshow" the Media does not essentially participate in the POI storytelling, even without the caption. In the POI dossier, there will be a slideshow at the bottom of the chapter with a little preview image.


Source of the multimedia file.

URL and consulting date if the source is the web, bibliographic references if the source is a book.

Authors (surname and name)

If relevant you should write surnames and names of the authors, or even if it is written on the source. If the multimedia file is yours you should insert your name and surname.

Copyright holder

Copyright holder (institution or person) if relevant (e.g. Museo Torino).

NB Do NOT upload material which is protected by copyright without authorization.

Choose a license

Specify the license of the multimedia content, if relevant and necessary.

External links

Insert the URL of web pages which deepen the subject or which discuss complementary topics.

You should insert the URL of the website, followed by a space and a title. Only the title will be visible to the user.

For example if you insert: See on Museo Torino

User will see only the active link:

See on Museo Torino

Group permissions

Choice of user groups who can see or modify the Media, when it is ready.

Advanced options

Save as

Draft: still not complete, available for modifications and integrations. Drafts are visible only in List, not on Atlas from the authorized group work.

Ready: writing complete. Further modifications are possible. Media schedules are visible both on List and on Atlas for the authorized group work.

Public: verified schedule, immediately visible from all the users on Atlas.

In every case, not saved materials will not be registered and will be lost.

The AtlasFor Staff reserves the right to remove any material (classifying as a draft and warning the author) which goes against target and stile at the basis of Landscapefor.

Order in chapters

You can choose the order in which present your Media inside each chapter.

Aprendo la lista Media corrispondente al POI è visualizzata una vista a tabulato con tutti i Media contenuti. Nella colonna "capitolo" di ogni Media vi è un link in blu con la scritta "Ordina in...". Cliccando sul link viene aperta la pagina del capitolo corrispondente, in cui si possono trascinare i Media (drag-and-drop) per ottenere l'ordine desiderato. Alla fine dell'operazione è necessario salvare il riordino.


A theme which unites all the POI referred to. It allows you to select them in the map or in the list.

For the operators the archive is predefined and it can not be modified. Expert users can attribute a POI to different archives between the ones suggested on the list, allowing in this way a selection on the basis of different themes. Usually, Media archive is the same of the POI referred to, even if it is possible to attribute to Media different archives.

Personal Notes

Space for personal notes, as a reminder or to share ideas with the members of the working group.


Space reserved to the AtlasFor Staff. It is used to indicate to operators eventual corrections or insights, necessary for the publication of the POI.
