Data Collected, Data Corrected, Data Connected: Managing Archaeological Data Using the Online Cultural and Historical Research Environment (OCHRE)

With over 10 years of data management under its belt, OCHRE hit a home run in the summer of 2016 with game-changing enhancements that transform the collecting, correcting, and connecting of a project's archaeological data, as demonstrated by a rigorous and highly successful field test at Tell Keisan, Israel. Thus inspired, we'd like to share our experience and invite other projects to get in the game! This hands-on, interactive workshop targets project directors and/or team members who are ready to take a swing at creating an effective, comprehensive, and integrated digital record of their material world. OCHRE was designed from the ground up to understand the complexity, fragmentariness, and heterogeneity of archaeological data, whether newly captured by an active excavation, or ruefully compiled from legacy data. The workshop will be coached by research database specialists of the OCHRE Data Service (University of Chicago) who will go to bat for you to help solve issues of archaeological data management.
