Archaeology and Open Source Learning:
Uses of DINAA for University Courses in Culture
Areas, GIS, Heritage Management, and Outreach

The Digital Index of North American Archaeology
(DINAA) provides public domain data on
archaeological sites that are useful for research
and linked data publication, but also have
tremendous interpretive value for university
students, or for public outreach.
o CULTURE AREA & HISTORY COURSES
o GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS
o HERITAGE MANAGEMENT
o PUBLIC OUTREACH
NOTE: Although DINAA materials are useful for
illustrating aspects of the archaeological
compliance process, DINAA is not designed, nor
accepted, to be used as a resource for an
archaeological compliance process. In order to
provide site records as public data, sensitive data
fields have been redacted. DINAA visualizations
are limited to 20x20 km grid cells that prevent
unauthorized geographic access.

ABOVE: Visualization of a query for Middle Woodland
sites through the DINAA Web application. ABOVE: Visualization of a Middle Woodland query
filtered for only sites within Indiana. DINAA queries
can be filtered by culture history categories,
geographic locations, or key terms, to create broad
areas of interest. These tools are publicly available to
any user with a Web browser.
ABOVE: Query results for individual
Indiana site records, as unique
linked open data objects that are
visualized in the density graphic to
the left. Batch download options will
soon be available.
ABOVE & RIGHT: Selected examples of linked open data
fields currently available for the Mann Site (12PO2), a
multicomponent site most famous for its Middle Woodland
Hopewellian complex of earthworks, and world class
artifactual preservation that has helped to place it on the
National Register of Historic Places.
Through DINAA, links to online data sets, reports, or
publications hosted anywhere can be added to any site record
and become part of the query process. Because DINAA does
not directly host extra materials, and is based on open
government data, site data are public domain.
LEFT: Examples of “standard” county level GIS maps, based on
county name identifiers that are available in DINAA, produced
through QGIS. Users can manipulate query returns through
downloads of the DINAA grid, or by relating sites to their own
spatial data for political jurisdictions. Because of DINAA’s free
and open source availability, linked open data architecture, and
commitment to coordination with successful open source tools,
researchers, students, and stakeholders are free to engage
DINAA data through the Web application or their own software.
Growth of DINAA data links and coverage will improve these
possibilities. Encourage use of DINAA to link and cite your data.
ABOVE: Middle Woodland DINAA visualization exported to QGIS
or other GIS software as a GEOJSON file to be further analyzed
(or exported to shapefile) with other geographic data sets.
ABOVE: The QGIS website (formerly Quantum
GIS) contains cross-platform downloads of the
complete application that is readily comparable to
ArcGIS. QGIS is completely free and open source,
with robust instructional literature, and a vibrant
user community. Complete QGIS instructions will
soon be available through the DINAA blog.
• Investigate culture areas or specific names
• Visualize distributions of site use types
• Search for key terms of interest
• Consider uses of definitions and ontologies
• Use real archaeological data to illustrate and
teach GIS concepts
• Compare regularized distributions
• Introduce students to open data sources
• Compatible with ArcGIS or other software
• Compare jurisdictional strategies for site
description with original data
• Search for references to available reports
• Examine investigative techniques
• Consider sampling strategies at large scales
• Use DINAA for public education
• Link DINAA queries to online artifact catalogs
or other available data and reports
• Use stable DINAA identifiers to organize and
publicize your own collections
