Web UI: Archaelogical Research Database Application

My first UI Design work for large web applications, 2009-10

The Discovery Programme, the Irish State's foremost archaeological body, contracted me to UI Design 2 applications for Irish archaeologists to database their findings. It would then be rolled out across Europe. There were to be a huge number of data fields.

The 2 Projects

Wodan: A very detailed database of ancient wood and charcoal fragments. This was the largest project, with the most fields, screens and user tasks.
Mapping Death: A database of ancient burials. Very similar to Wodan but smaller and simpler.


My 2016 Re-Design Concepts (created in Sketch App)

Below: My updated Site-Level screen design. It's flatter, neater, and easier to use—with bigger UI elements for touchscreen.


Then the Samples-level screen (watch the 'breadcrumbs')


Then the Taxon-level screen (watch the 'breadcrumbs')


Then the Fragments-level screen (watch the 'breadcrumbs')


Then we edit data for an individual Fragment
