Abstract

The Rock-Art Database is a rock art heritage project based in the Place, Evolution and Rock Art Heritage Unit (PERAHU), School of Humanities, Languages and Social Science, Griffith University, Queensland, Australia that began in 2012. The project aims to bring members of the global rock art community together in one centralized online platform to share and discuss rock art information in order to make rock art data more accessible and more visible. The platform offers a tool to a wide range of users to collect, manage and disseminate rock art data through specialized functionalities in digital formats that explore new ways to look at rock art through a collaborative, ontological and information visualization approach. The Rock-Art Database was first released in 2014 and can be accessed on the Web at http://www.rockartdatabase.com. This paper presents results of the deployed Rock-Art Database model and discusses its potential for future rock art data explorations.
