GeoRSS Feed

We now produce a GeoRSS feed which includes all excavations in the Nabonidus database that have longitude and latitude coordinates defined. Online Archaeology is consuming this feed to create their Nabonidus layer on their Google Map which we blogged about recently.

Collaboration with Online-Archaeology

Online Archaeology are now very kindly displaying all the Nabonidus Excavations on their site using their Google Maps server.

The map is here. Just click on the layers icon and check the Nabonidus checkbox to display the excavations.

Online Archaeology have also posted instructions here.

Nabonidus Search Web Service

We've recently exposed a web service to allow other applications to search Nabonidus' public data. If you would like to use the web service please email us (administrator at nabonidus dot org) and we will send you the WSDL or alternatively pick it up here:

We are using it in our Desktop version of Nabonidus and it works quite well. It is free to use and hopefully will help to provide a way for archaeologists to easily search across multiple online datasets.

Regards, Ben.

Update 2007-04-15: We have added some extra fields to the web service. It now returns the longitude and latitude (if they exist) for each search result. Online Archaeology have very kindly implemented the search here:
