    The software for the Principal Sites Control was delivered today, November 4.  A new data base has also been released.  It contains some new sites and features.  New search files have been delivered.

    Your feedback is very valuable to me.  My e-mail address is: bobconsoli 'at'

    Please follow me on Twitter: @squinchpix

    I would ask you to follow me on Google Plus but c'est la guerre.

    Friends don't let friends use Facebook and if you are using it please stop.

    Useful .kml and/or .csv files can be generated directly from all the windows (including the new reports pages) of the website   Try it out!   I'm also willing to generate custom .csv or .kml files from the atlas if you need something specific.

    Most researchers in this field use some product like Microsoft's Excel to create a DB.  This is fine; it's what is generally referred to as a 'flat file' - a single table representation of your data of interest.

    The Mycenaean Atlas database, on the other hand, is a relational database with several tables.  It was built using MySQL.  I will make dumps of this DB available but you need MySQL (or similar) and a knowledge of Structured Query Language (SQL) to run it.  (I'm pretty sure that you can interface to my database from ArcGIS or QGIS).  

    Otherwise it doesn't make much sense to ask for it.  But If you'd like to have a copy of the Mycenaean Atlas database anyway then e-mail me (bobconsoli 'at' and tell me about your project.  I want to share the Database but just remember that it's a relational SQL DB.
