Online database for research on the development of pottery shapes and filling capacities
Direction: Dr. Claudia Lang-Auinger
Project duration: 01.04.2017 – 31.03.2019
This ongoing project has been funded by the go!digital programme, Austria, and is connected to the wider CVA (Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum) project.
In short, the objectives of ODEEG are to: (1) Digitally document vases in 3D; (2) Ensure long‐term digital preservation of the documentation; (3) Make a variety of data available for researchers via a dedicated online database, referencing to the Beazley Archive Pottery Database (University of Oxford), with a special focus on 3D models and filling capacities. By providing a publicly available, long‐term, online archive, we aim at creating an ideal foundation to gain further knowledge in answering innovative scientific questions dealing with interior and exterior measurements of vessels.
