Cappadocia on the Commons


The Cappadocia on the Commons initiative augments the Digital Catalog of Cappadocian Ceiling Crosses with an interactive map and 3D models of Byzantine monuments, curated into a public-facing web resource. This project begins with a digital dissertation data contribution to a stable repository. The data is then pulled into a public facing website that I will build as an interactive catalog of Byzantine monuments in Cappadocia, Turkey. I will share the work as Linked Open Data (research that is formatted using a controlled vocabulary and available for others to link to and reuse) to avoid an isolated “data silo.”


My roles will include director and content specialist
