Join Historic Environment Scotland experts for this one-day conference, funded by the Royal Society of Edinburgh, discussing the current initiatives that are being used to harmonise data from archaeology projects.
Every year archaeologists create a wealth of data through fieldwork and research that is essential to our understanding and interpretation of the past. Despite the geographic character of much of that record, we consistently fail to realise its potential. Site plans and detailed survey data are routinely locked into the pages of PDF reports. As a result plans fossilised in print cannot easily be reused alongside other datasets to improve our understanding of the past.
This one-day conference will explore these challenges, and unlock the potential of spatial data with experts from Historic Environment Scotland, Scottish Government and more.
