This message is for anyone working on an excavation, leading students,
participating in a tour, or otherwise planning a trip to the Mediterranean
area.  Please forward to anyone who may be interested.


The Stoa Consortium would like to announce the publication of its
Guidelines for Recording and Submitting Handheld GPS Waypoints
(http://www.stoa.org/gps.shtml).

To date there are few repositories of geographic coordinates available to a
wide audience that deal specifically with the ancient world, although an
increasing number of individual classroom and research projects make use of
such geographic data. Since many students and teachers now travel to the
Mediterranean region with GPS receivers for their own study and research
purposes, the Perseus Project and the Stoa Consortium have developed these
guidelines to promote a standard methodology for recording and submitting
data. These standards would allow students, scholars, researchers or anyone
working in the field to contribute to a growing permanent repository of
geographic information that can be accessed and used by the widest possible
audience.  For example, students, historians, or archaeologists could
download repository data to create their own maps and study projects, or
load data into their GPS units to take into the field.

The repository we have begun to build according to these guidelines is
itself part of a larger organizational effort for associating various
internet projects via a new Register of Ancient Geographic Entities. RAGE
users will be able to: look up a project, look up a place name (to find
matches or linked entities from any project), look up a single toponym (to
find multiple names for that toponym in different projects), propose links
between two names (submit that x and y refer to the same entity), and
propose a link between a name and an entity (submit that x is a name for a
particular entity already in RAGE).

The GPS guidelines at the Stoa web site outline basic equipment needs as
well as procedures for recording GPS waypoints and submitting data to the
Stoa consortium.  If you are interested in contributing geographic data,
please visit the GPS Guidelines web page at the Stoa Consortium:
http://www.stoa.org/gps.shtml

Please feel free to address questions, comments, and suggestions regarding
the GPS Guidelines or the Stoa Consortium to Robert Chavez
([log in to unmask])  or Ross Scaife ([log in to unmask]).
