Sevastopol State University will Help Tauric Khersones to Digitize Excavation Results


Sevastopol State University plans to begin digitizing the data of excavation results conducted by specialists at the Tauric Khersones Museum-Reserve, said the Rector of Sevastopol State University, Vladimir Nechaev at the first forum of the university consortium of big data researchers ‘Open Data – 2019’.

“We work closely with Khersones and we have a project to digitize big data - information obtained from the excavation. Using technologies for working with big data, you can draw interesting conclusions about the relations between regions and specify dates” he said.

According to him, the truly effective application of technologies for working with big data will be if not only Khersones but also other archaeological institutions digitize their data too. At the same time, it is better to convert data into an electronic form and to a single standard.

Modern day Sevastopol was inhabited 2.5 thousand years ago and in the years 424-421 BC the ancient Greek colony of Tauric Khersones was founded, the city existed until the end of the 14th century AD.
