    • A Marriage of Convenience: the Possibilities of Service-oriented Architecture and Web 2.0 for Digital Archaeology Stuart Dunn Centre for e-Research King’s College London SAA 2008 Vancouver, B.C.
    • A Marriage of Convenience: the Possibilities of Service-oriented Architecture and Web 2.0 for Digital Archaeology
    • A Marriage of Convenience: the Possibilities of Service-oriented Architecture and Web 2.0 for Digital Archaeology
      • Using networks to connect resources
      • Grids to allow virtual computing across “admin domains”
        • Virtual digital libraries, virtual museums, virtual observatories
      • Technology that was first adopted in sciences…
      E-Science: Building bridges People Data Computation A Marriage of Convenience: the Possibilities of Service-oriented Architecture and Web 2.0 for Digital Archaeology (with thanks to Tobias Blanke, King’s College London)
    • “ the development and deployment of a networked infrastructure and culture through which resources – (…) – can be shared in a secure environment, and in which new forms of collaboration can emerge, and new and advanced methodologies explored.” - Sheila Anderson Director, Centre for e-Research, King’s College London, 2007 A Marriage of Convenience: the Possibilities of Service-oriented Architecture and Web 2.0 for Digital Archaeology
    • A Marriage of Convenience: the Possibilities of Service-oriented Architecture and Web 2.0 for Digital Archaeology What is SOA? “ a collection of loosely-coupled, distributed services which communicate and interoperate via agreed standards. The combination of a service and standards-based approach can result in a directory of reusable service components which together can be employed to enhance existing networked applications or build new applications.” - University of Oxford ICT strategic plan http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mj-kCFzF0ME
    • A Marriage of Convenience: the Possibilities of Service-oriented Architecture and Web 2.0 for Digital Archaeology Enter archaeology…
      • Multiple ways of accessing multiple information
      • SMRs
      • Digital Libraries
      • Grey Lit.
      • Individual site records
      • Government agencies
      • Tag clouds
      • Blogs
      • Wikis
      • Different file structures and metadata
      • Created by different kinds of user
      • Often constrained by modern national boundaries
      • Some aggregate data, some deliver data from a single source
    • A Marriage of Convenience: the Possibilities of Service-oriented Architecture and Web 2.0 for Digital Archaeology
      • Attempts to provide real-time access to a range of sources of information
      • Uses Grid middleware
      • Deploys different services
      • Is an example of a top down approach
      • Operates accepted standards
    • A Marriage of Convenience: the Possibilities of Service-oriented Architecture and Web 2.0 for Digital Archaeology
      • Digital legacy of the Barrington Atlas
      • Users can add their own data on, or about, Greco-Roman placenames
      • Flexible, works at different scales
      • Is an example of a bottom up approach
    • A Marriage of Convenience: the Possibilities of Service-oriented Architecture and Web 2.0 for Digital Archaeology The SOA approach Benefits
      • Bringing together data and tools wherever/whoever they originate from
      • Simplify the process of acquiring and publishing data
      Drawbacks
      • Trust/subversion of peer-review(?)
      • Security
      • Misuse of data
