|FREE event: Federated Archaeological information Management Systems
Federated Archaeological information Management Systems (FAIMS) is a National eResearch Collaborative Tools and Resources (Australia) funded project to produce a comprehensive information system for archaeology and related fieldwork disciplines. Through community engagement it has developed flexible, robust and extensible tools for acquiring, refining, and archiving archaeological and related data. It allows data from field and laboratory work to be born digital using mobile devices, processed in web applications (local or online), and published online through a data repository. Means for facilitating the production of semantically, as well as syntactically, interoperable datasets have been built into the application at multiple points in the data lifecyle. Since the needs of archaeological fieldwork and research vary – and because many earlier efforts to construct archaeological data resources failed from being overly prescriptive – the project has developed the core of a federated, open-source system, encouraging the growth of an extensible range of options at each stage of data management.
This workshop follows early demonstrations of the system at the Computer Applications in Archaeology conference (Perth, March 2013) but now presents these tools (especially the mobile platform) in a much more mature state.
