ArchAIDE Mid-project Results
A datasheet on the mid-project results of ArchAIDE.
Big Archaeological Data. The ArchAIDE project approach
Digitisation has changed archaeology deeply, but it does not by itself involve datafication. Datafication fits a Big Data approach and promises to go significantly beyond digitisation. To datafy archaeology would mean to produce a flow of data starting from the data produced by the archaeological practice. The ArchAIDE project goes exactly in this direction.
The ArchAIDE Project: results and perspectives after the first year
Paper, describes the work carried out during the first year of life of the project. The main focus is on the procedure for
digitizing paper catalogues in an automatic way, and more precisely on archaeologist’s methodologies, digitalization
of text, vectorization of technical drawings, and shape-based classification of virtual fragments.
From digitization to datafication. A new challenge is approaching archaeology
