This paper presents an investigation into the use of data model in the domain of cultural heritage both for collection management and digital multimedia content. Vast amount of multimedia content needed a special data model to cater the need of both database and application in cultural heritage. Research in database and application for cultural heritage application are currently active. However, limited research has been done in the local context. The paper presents a new hybrid data model which employ a combination of CIDOC Conceptual Reference Model standard (ISO 21127:2006) and MPEG-7 standard. The methodology of this research is by conducting multiple case studies to local museum organizations in order to gather information and requirements of cultural heritage database and application. Information regarding the relevant guidelines, standards and reference models are also been studied. The new hybrid data model designed in this paper shows that both of the standards can be combined together to cater the need of local requirements of database and applications.
