Description

Corpus Nummorum is a joint project of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, the Münzkabinett Berlin, and the Big Data Lab of the University of Frankfurt. It indexes ancient Greek coins from various landscapes across collections and develops typologies. The coins and types are published on a multilingual website using numismatic authority data and FAIR principles.
As part of the project, the CN Editor was developed as a multifunctional web app that can fully handle the project's data entry workflow and provide extensive search and optimisation functions, as well as various evaluation options. This open-source tool has a modular structure. This allows the Editor to be quickly extended with new functions or adapted to other object types, which makes it interesting for projects beyond numismatics. CN forms a digital research infrastructure that allows and promotes the re-use of aggregated data and unrestricted collaboration with other persons or institutions.
