  3. 3. Collection, not an edition Public accessibility Enable scholarly analysis/visualization GOALS
  4. 4. Extensible Markup Language (XML) EpiDoc Standard Metadata About the physical object: material; type; location; find About the text: Language; date; religion Controlled vocabularies Text Diplomatic transcription Edited transcription English translation XML Tagging in Hebrew ENCODING STANDARDS

  7. 7. Sharing data EAGLE USING THE EPIDOC STANDARD
  8. 8. Standards based and automatable Version control: Subversion (moving to Github) Servers hit Subversion once an hour automatically Solr indexed: Preprocesssig (removing Greek accents; interword tags, etc. for indexing/searching) Django interface Data preservation: Brown Digital Repository TECHNICAL DETAILS
  9. 9. Goal: Make encoding as simple and intuitive as possible Encoders: Template in Oxygen XML Files created in shared Dropbox folder Bibliography in Zotero WORKFLOW: FIRST STAGE
  10. 10. When completed, files are reviewed, preferably by another encoder After the review, they are uploaded to the development server Subversion Processing to enable searching WORKFLOW: SECOND STAGE
  11. 11. API (Application Programming Interface) Geographical Objects Visual LINKED DATA
  12. 12. Pleiades (http://pleiades.stoa.org) <origin> <placeName ref=https://Pleiades.stoa.org/places/687968> <location unit=“lat-lon”><geo>31.31904988, 35.35230084</geo></location> <region>Judaea</region> <settlement>Masada</settlement> <geogFeat type=“locus”>113</geogFeat> </placeNeme> </origin> GEOGRAPHICAL LINKING
  13. 13. What is it? Getty Taxonomy (https://www.getty.edu/research/tools/vocabularies/) E.g., all altar inscriptions in Greek from the third century CE <category xml:id=“#altar”> <catDesc><ref target=http://vocab.getty.edu/aat/300003725>Altar</ref></catDesc> </category> OBJECTS <catDesc><ref target="http://xxxx">Flagstone</ref></catDesc> </category> <category xml:id="architectural.flagstone"> <catDesc><ref target="http://xxxx">Flagstone</ref></catDesc> </category> <category xml:id="architectural.flagstone"> <catDesc><ref target="http://xxxx">Flagstone</ref></catDesc> </category>
  14. 14. Drawing on images displayed on other sites E.g., Brooklyn Museum API (http://www.programmableweb.com/api/brooklyn-museum) Annotate, process, analyze VISUAL
  15. 15. Redesign the site using more geography and images Add richer content encoding (e.g., morphological; names) Analytical tools A site for the integration and analysis of material culture? LARGER VISION
  16. 16. NEW INTERFACE
