The Federal Monuments Office documentations were converted into long-lived digital document formats and the information on sites/structures, finds and stratigraphic units was extracted. The extracted information as well as the metal analyses of the axes were represented in a universal model (CIDOC CRM, an ISO standard for cultural heritage documentation), which will allow the data to be understood decades from now, as the documentation of the ISO standard will be preserved.

The mining history thesaurus was also represented in an Internet Standard. All the data sets produced are stored in one of the longest certified repositories (ZENODO) and transferred into the European infrastructure for archaeological data sets (ARIADNE). Thus, they are available for further research and their future existence is guaranteed. The chosen procedure generated so-called FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) data, as was the mandate of the project.

Furthermore, the applied data modelling will contribute to the efforts of the international archaeological community to develop a data standard for archaeological data, that will be applied within the ARIADNE consortium to create an integrated database.
