Stuff goes in. Stuff comes out.

The Box is a joint project between all interested parties in the archaeological sector to work towards a common (Spatial) Data Infrastructure. The primary goal is to develop a system by which a) it is simplest for numerous parties to enter large quantities of heterogeneous data, and b) it is simplest for numerous parties to extract said specified but unknown data in a useful fashion.

The project will be broken into 3 inter-relating subprojects, each of which will need to interact with one another via defined interfaces.

Each project will be a combination of research into and adoption of appropriate current standards and technologies, along with a concrete implementation that is entirely Open Source. They are also community-driven, so all interested parties are able to contribute to and change this wiki, although protocol would encourage the prior use of discussion pages first.
