Royal Armouries is the United Kingdom’s national museum of arms and armour, including artillery. The ‘Collections’ website brings unprecedented access to their digital archives and features large images of their collection objects, information unavailable online until now. Features include the ability to search and examine items from the collection, as well as fast autoloading of content, related media and detailed object information.
The Gooii solution is based on CIIM architecture, PHP framework for page rendering with the search interface in React JS drawing object data from an Elasticsearch index, aggregated from the museum’s collections management systems therefore providing the best in terms of speed of search performance and page visibility.
Gooii have been instrumental with the team at RA in the design and user experience of the collections website all in line with the RA branding guidelines.
