Abstract

Starting with a presentation of the initial situation of the research project, including the databases existing in the research field, as well as known procedures, which were inspiring for our webbased archive. I will discuss the reasons and arguments for deciding the use of Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) as a web-based tool for collaborative work. It will be shown how the agile modeling of the data model works in cooperation with the research team. I also will present the functionality of THESPIS.DIGITAL, the used extensions and the finally used skin. At the end of the presentation I’ll give an insight on the further development of THESPIS.DIGITAL; especially with regard to the possibilities for the evaluation and visualization of the data.
