University of Arizona: Digital Archaeology Project to Use Big Data

University of Arizona: Digital Archaeology Project to Use Big Data. “”To help provide researchers, scholars and the general public with a ‘deep history’ understanding of some of the grand challenges facing society, [Barbara] Mills and fellow UA researcher Sudha Ram are leading an interdisciplinary National Science Foundation-funded project to build an online system that pulls together and synthesizes archaeological data spanning several centuries of U.S history. The project, called cyberSW, focuses specifically on pre-Hispanic archaeological data from the American Southwest — Arizona, Utah, New Mexico and Colorado — from A.D. 800 to the 1500s, shortly after the arrival of the Spanish in the region.”
