Come visit Leigh Anne Ellison at the Arizona Historic Preservation Conference, in Mesa, Arizona later this week. She will be on hand at The Center for Digital Antiquity/tDAR booth in the exhibitor’s hall on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.
SAA and Digital Antiquity are pleased to announce a collaborative program to focus increased attention on the curation of digital data from archaeological projects.
A new report concludes that current archaeological, historic preservation, and records management laws and regulations require that digital archaeological data generated by federal agencies must be deposited in an appropriate digital repository. Such repositories will provide long-term preservation and accessibility of digital files to qualified users.
The Center for Digital Antiquity and ADS are proud to announce the print publication of Caring for Digital Data in Archaeology: A Guide to Good Practice. This new volume is the culmination of three years of work to update the Guides to Good Practice to cover a wider range of archaeological data and to refresh the content with up-to-date information.
We are pleased to announce that the Mimbres Pottery Images Digital Database is now available in tDAR. The deposit of these digital files in tDAR was made possible with funding provided by the Mimbres Foundation. The database contains a collection of over 9,000 images of Mimbres ceramic vessels, among the most spectacular and renowned prehistoric pottery in North America.
Regular updates to the tDAR software comprise an integral part of Digital Antiquity’s commitment to digital archaeological data preservation.
We have wonderful things planned for tDAR in 2013, from an updated look and feel to the tDAR application, to a number of exciting new software features. But, as we start out 2013, it's interesting to take a look at how tDAR has changed and evolved in 2012. 2012 was a big year for tDAR and Digital Antiquity and we're grateful to you for being part of it. 2012 included Digital Antiquity receiving a second grant from the Andrew W.
tDAR will be unavailable on the evening of December 21st from roughly 9 PM PDT – 2 AM December 22nd for system maintenance. We apologize for any inconvenience.
