In Archeofoss 2020, Katia Roesler, Frederic Auth, Wenke Domscheit and Kerstin P. Hofmann presented on the role of editions of objects and their specific form of publication in archaeological science and in comparative and classifying research (abstract in https://zenodo.org/record/4002961#.YHgzlOgzaUk).
Transferring editions of objects to the semantic web and utilizing the possibilities virtuality offers, must respect three criteria. Firstly, the edition must be widely accepted and continuously used in the scientific community allowing substantial metadata to be extracted. Furthermore, the editions should be published in the DAI or its departments so that copyrights and publication rights are ensured. Finally, the data of the edition should be set out in a form that enables them to be transferred to a database (DB) and data related illustrations should be available.
Starting from the creation of ceramics’ relational DB of the volume of Conspectus Formarum Terrae Sigillatae Italico Modo Confectae, the intention is to introduce a representational tool for the combination of rim-, wall- and base-forms of vessels that is based on open-source software.
That means not only is the data free to use, but, if possible, it also ensures the access to the original context the data was or is represented in.
