Eric E. Poehler and Sebastian Heath: Pompeii Artistic Landscape Project

Dr Eric E. Poehler (University of Massachusetts Amherst) and Dr Sebastian Heath (Institute for the Study of the Ancient World at New York University) present the Pompeii Artistic Landscape Project (PALP). PALP is an online resource, based in a Linked Open Data (LOD) format, to encourage sitewide discovery, mapping, analysis, and sharing of information about Pompeian artworks in their architectural contexts. The goal of PALP is to dramatically increase the number of researchers and members of the public who can access, analyze, interpret, and share the artworks of the most richly documented urban environment of the Roman world: Pompeii. This talk will explore the PALP’s work to accommodate the data on Pompeian artworks and their information structures as well as transforming the data produced into LOD formats. Including live demos!
