GeoDia was part of a presentation given by Adam Rabinowitz at the NEH-sponsored Linked Ancient World Data Institute (LAWDI) workshop held at the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World in New York, May 31-June 2. The presentation focused on issues of metadata and information sharing for archaeology and the ancient world. The Institute was productive and exciting, and we look forward to putting some of the Linked Data principles discussed there into practice.
Welcome to the GeoDia User Forum
This blog is set up to serve as a way to collect feedback from users of GeoDia, a spatial timeline of the ancient Mediterranean developed by Adam Rabinowitz (University of Texas at Austin, department of Classics), Peter Keane and Stuart Ross (UT Liberal Arts Instructional Technology Services), and Nick Rabinowitz, using Nick's timemap.js library and the LAITS DASe architecture, with support from two LAITS project grants. It will also serve as a place where GeoDia managers can alert users to additions, changes, and new developments. The GeoDia code itself can be found at http://code.google.com/p/geodia/.
