DEFC (Digitizing Early Farming Cultures) is a project conducted in cooperation between the Institute for Oriental and European Archaeology (OREA) and the ACDH-CH.
The DEFC-App is an application for curating, exploring, and retrieving archaeological datasets. Core assets of the application are its data model, a well curated controlled vocabulary, and the usage of established norm data records (Geonames, GND), which makes the handling and normalization of very heterogeneous data sets possible.
Albeit the developing process is far from being completed yet, the code as well as a running version of the application are publicly available. Comments, feedback, or encouragement will be highly appreciated.
