Ancient Egyptian Architecture Online - Illustrated Standardized Terminology (AEGARON-IST)

Grant details: https://securegrants.neh.gov/publicquery/main.aspx?f=1&gn=HG-50046-13

Ancient Egyptian Architecture Online - Illustrated Standardized Terminology (Database/Archive/Digital Edition)
Title: Ancient Egyptian Architecture Online - Illustrated Standardized Terminology
Author: Willeke Wendrich
Author: Ulrike Fauerbach
Author: Martin Saelhof
Author: Stefan Seidlmayer
Author: Claudia Horning

Author: Elizabeth McAulay
Author: Kristian Allen
Abstract: Terminology can be more confusing than enlightening, if it is unclear how a term is used. In Egyptology this is certainly the case, because Egyptian architectural terminology is different from that used in other historical architectural regions, such as in Classical architecture. Making use and expanding upon the architectural drawings and photographs of the AEGARON project, AEGARON-IST provides a well-thought out and vetted architectural terminology in three languages (English, German and Arabic). Each term is illustrated by actual examples, rather than idealized construction drawings. The database links to the Getty Thesaurus of Art and Architecture and has a built in hierarchical organization and definition of relationships.
Year: 2015
Primary URL: http://http://drupaldev.aegaron.ucla.edu/
Primary URL Description: This is the address of the development server where AEGARON-IST currently is tested on user experience. All assets (architectural drawings, photographs and the terminology database structure) are housed in the repository of the UCLA Digital Library for long term sustainable storage. The front-end, visible to the user is at present in development by the UCLA Institute for Digital Research and Education (IDRE). The front end has been programmed in Drupal, and will be housed in the Digital Library once the development phase has been finalized. The map viewer in this version has been completely re-designed. July 2016: the development site suddenly lost contact with the library servers. The team is trouble shooting this situation, which we hope will be solved soon, so that the site can go live.
Secondary URL: http://http://dai.aegaron.ucla.edu/
Secondary URL Description: This is the original AEGARON site, which only contains architectural plans, but not yet the terminology (end result of HG-50012-09). The functionality of this site has been improved in the Drupal version of AEGARON-ISt.
Access Model: Fully Open Access
