Several of the American Numismatic Society's current projects are going to be demonstrated at CAA 2012, to be held in Southampton, England next week. CAA, Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology, is an interesting conferences that draws as many archaeologists as computer and information scientists, including many alt-ac people like myself who are a hybrid of the two fields.
Below is one of the slideshows that we will be presenting.
It introduces nomisma.org and details our use of NUDS-XML and Numishare to create an open-access web-based version of Roman Imperial Coinage. The demo is available at http://admin.numismatics.org/ocre.
