Increasingly, archaeology data are being made available openly on the web. But what do these data show? How can we interrogate them? How can we visualize them? How can we re-use data visualizations?
We’d like to know. This is why we have created the Open Context and Carleton University Prize for Archaeological Visualization and we invite you to build, make, hack, the Open Context data and API for fun and prizes.
Anyone! Wherever you are in the world, we invite you to participate. All entries will be publicly accessible and promoted via a context gallery on the Open Context website.
The prize competition is sponsored by the following:
- The Alexandria Archive Institute (the nonprofit that runs Open Context)
- The Digital Archaeology at Carleton University Project, led by Shawn Graham
All prizes are awarded in the form of cash awards or gift vouchers of equivalent value. Depending on the award type, please note currency:
- Best individual entry: $US200
- Best team entry (teams of 2 or 3): $US300 (split accordingly)
- Best student entry: $C200
- Best student team entry (teams of 2 or 3): $C300 (split accordingly)
We will also note “Honorable Mentions” for each award category.
