SAT Taishōzō Image DB has been built and managed by the SAT Daizōkyō Text Database Committee (led by Professor Masahiro Shimoda of the University of Tokyo) in order to contribute to the promotion of humanities in the digital era through leveraging digital media and technologies in Buddhist studies. The project of the SAT Taishōzō Image DB, which is working to embed tags to Buddhist images in the Image Section of the Taishō Tripitaka, is being led by Mr. Tetsuei Tsuda, chief curator in the National Research Institute for Cultural Properties in Tokyo, assisted by forty-three researchers of Japanese art history. The tagging work on the first two of twelve volumes is nearly complete, with the remaining work is ongoing.
This database is released by the Daizō Shuppan Corporation and the SAT Daizōkyō Text Database Committee under the license of CC BY-SA 4.0, to promote Buddhist studies in the digital era.
The project has been funded by JSPS Kakenhi 15H05725 and 15HP8001.
This database is compliant with IIIF (International Image Interoperability Framework) in Presentation API and Image API. It mainly adopts the Mirador IIIF viewer and Universal viewer which have been developed as open source software. Up to now, the search function is implemented with PostgreSQL, rather than IIIF Search API. Users can search images not only from the search window but also from the value of a tag by clicking on it. Several keywords can be searched by ASCII characters such as "bosatsu", "bodhisattva", "nyorai", "kongo", "monju", "fugen", and so on. This system provides a function to display several images in parallel easily via a cart. For details, please see the explanations on the interface of the database. The collaboration system for tagging was developed by use of OpenSeadragon. All implementations were developed by Dr. Kiyonori Nagasaki of DHII.
