Title [en]
SEAD - The Strategic Environmental Archaeology Database
Abstract [sv]
The Strategic Environmental Archaeology Database (SEAD) is being constructed as an integrated online database-GIS-analysis resource to store, manipulate, explore and disseminate environmental archaeology data. SEAD will provide access to raw data and reports as well as analysis tools. The system is being constructed by an inter-disciplinary development team at the Environmental Archaeology Lab and HUMlab at Umeå University, working closely with similar projects internationally. A previous VR grant allowed the initial construction of interfaces for the facetted browsing of environmental data along with insect based climate change analyses. Data entry interfaces have also been built and it remains for the large data mass to be entered and clearing house systems engaged. HUMlab?s involvement will stimulate the development of innovative data mining, interfacing and visualization techniques beyond those traditionally used with online databases. SEAD will not only contribute to the growth of internationally accessible scientific infrastructures, but provide an indispensable resource for research into the history of human interactions with the environment. The past is the key to the present and future, and as source of long term empirical evidence SEAD, could provide important insights into the sustainability of landscape management practices, as well as facilitating new knowledge on long term changes in climate and biodiversity.
