I am interested to learn more about how other participants are recording and sharing their data (if you are). Are you using an in-house schema or an off-the-shelf commercial or open-source database? I would like get a general sense on what is out there.
The second aspect of my interest in data sharing is focused more directly on the classical archaeologists coming to THATCamp. The American Numismatics Society and ISAW just released Online Coins of the Roman Empire (OCRE), which aims to create a record for every coin type in the Roman Imperial Coinage catalog. So far, we have all of the coin types from Augustus to Hadrian (ca. 27 BC – AD 138). Our data is open and accessible. One of the aims of OCRE is to link to coins contained in various public and private collections. OCRE can ingest weights, measurements, and findspots for quantitative and geographic analyses, but none of the American Numismatic Society coins have known findspots. I’d love to talk about linking OCRE to “real” archaeological finds. In order for OCRE to link to other coins, metadata has to be available in a machine-readable format, like RDF. Anything I can learn about other archaeological data recording systems can help me adapt OCRE to interact with them.
