CLAROS: Classical Art Research

Claiming to be the “virtual integration of digital assets on classical art,” the CLAROS site uses Semantic Web data integration technologies and state-of-the art image recognition algorithms to bring classical art to anyone, any time, anywhere. Made possible in part through a grant from the University of Oxford, this site will eventually serve as a one stop resource with assets aggregated from The Beazley Archive, Lexicon Iconographicum Mythologiae Classicae – LIMC Basel and the Lexicon Iconographicum Mythologiae Classicae – LIMC Paris websites.

The search feature does crawl all resources currently, and this is demonstrated quite aptly in this nice screencast.

Naturally, there are some fantastic archeological resources linked as well. Classical art scholars unite!
