Abstract

This paper addresses two parallel and interlinked problems: the development of coordinated digital archaeological resources and libraries that focus on the publication of data, and the creation of a framework for the analysis and visualisation of these data. We present our methodology and a prototype for an Australian archaeological digital collection based on data grid technologies and infrastructure. We also report on preliminary results using innovative visualisation techniques for spatio-temporal data based on the Google Maps/Google Earth technology and progress on the development of a 3D reconstruction tool that visualises excavated archaeological deposits and associated stratigraphy. Data from three major archaeological projects in Queensland are employed, spanning Indigenous, contact and historical archaeology: Mill Point Archaeological Project, Cania Gorge Regional Archaeological Project and Index of Dates from Archaeological Sites in Queensland. These case studies were selected to represent the different challenges in deploying digital technologies to Australian archaeological applications.
