FLAME imports data from the CHRE (Coin Hoards of the Roman Empire)

posted in: General, Project Updates | 0

We are glad to announce that FLAME has imported 112,035 coins in 689 coin finds (all hoards) from the CHRE, another open access digital numismatics project. Although the data required some tweaking to conform to FLAMEā€™s internal structure, the relative ease in importing these coins reflects again the great potential in Open Access practices. A brief description of the issues involved in the process is accessible here. For the code involved in converting the data from the CHRE to FLAME see here.
