Physical description
6 data files (application/zip) (application/octet-stream) (text/csv) (text/xml) (image/gif) (image/jpeg)
Note
These data were made available previously via a search-enabled web site, at http://hibernia.ucd.ie.
Note
"In total, data for 1280 building and 93 streets relevant to the DEI and DDAMP were recovered, plus over 800 other building records that were collected during the DEI survey but were never included in the final published project due to resource and time limitations. The buildings records formed the core of the inventory, with details of architecture, history, and in-depth biographical references. The street records gave an overview of the evolution of the area and also contained detailed historical, mapping, and biographical references. After conversion, the recovered files were reviewed for usable data and completeness, followed by an archiving of the original data files and the pioneering of a structure for archiving new data."--Morrish & Laefer, Web-Enabling of Architectural Heritage Inventories (2010)
Provenance
Data made available here have been captured from the FileMakerPro database that provided access to information on the HIBERNIA web site. The database consisted of two tables, representing respectively data for buildings and streets. 1,074 GIF and JPEG images associated with a majority of records identifying buildings were also recovered from the file systems of the HIBERNIA web server.
Data available: Buildings
Data for buildings is made available as received, including the original FileMaker Pro data files (versions 7 and 12) as well as dumps of data in XML and CSV formats; the associated images are available for download in a single zip-compressed file archive.
Additional access to curated records
In addition to downloadable files, each descriptive record from the HIBERNIA buildings table is made available in the UCD Digital Library as a separate resource, linked to the associated image file. These data have been further curated: emendations to descriptive metadata have been made (corrections and expansion of secondary source citations; addition of reference numbers from the Dublin City Council's Record of Protect Structures; geocoding of locations).
Note
The HIBERNIA project was made possible by funding from the Heritage Council (Grant 15014) and UCD's Institute for Sustainable Development under the auspices of Urban Institute Ireland. The preparation of this inventory would not have been possible without the comprehensive work previously done by the students and staff of UCD's School of Architecture, Landscape, and Civil Engineering in the surveying and compilation of the original Dublin Environmental and Dublin Docklands Inventories and assistance from the UCD Richview Library.
