The Digital Index of North American Archaeology (DINAA) is a multi-institutional undertaking to create interoperability models for archaeological site databases in the eastern United States. The 2-year project, which is funded by the National Science Foundation, commenced September 1, 2012. View the technical proposal.
The DINAA project page on Heritage Bytes provides ongoing information about the progress of the project. More information can be found at the links below. We also broadcast updates to the community via the NASA (National Association of State Archaeologists) listserv. We welcome questions, comments, and other participation in this project, so please comment on the Heritage Bytes blog posts or contact us directly by emailing the project PIs (David Anderson and Josh Wells).
