In this video, we discuss how the collection and use of digital 3D datasets assembled from archaeological materials can be used to support new...
Archie - The Development and Implementation of an Open Source Archaeological Database System
Alex J. Nyers, Oregon State University
Karl Vollmer, Dalhousie University
Archie is an online, light-weight, open source inventory system for archaeological artifacts. With feedback from real world use in the field over the last several years, Archie has evolved into a robust, secure application capable of handling hundreds of active users and millions of entries. Archie supports associating multimedia files such as photos, audio and video commentary, and 3D scans of artifacts – all without any specialized client software beyond a web browser.
