lkfitz's bookmarks 2018-08-28
"Using partners that embrace Open Data principles, we will aggregate Greek vases connected to the concepts defined in Kerameikos.org. These partners include large museums with internationally recognized collections, such as the Getty and the British Museum, but also smaller university museums including the Fralin Museum at the University of Virginia, the Harvard Art Museums, and the Ure Museum of Greek Archaeology at the University of Reading (UK). The aggregation of these collections will facilitate sophisticated (even if incomplete) geographic and distribution analyses and will demonstrate the potential of Kerameikos.org as a research tool for the discipline. The vases will be encoded in CIDOC-CRM conforming to the specifications outlined in linked.art, a community-oriented project driven primarily by Linked Open Data specialists at the Getty Museum."
