Daniel Burt, Khalili Research Centre, University of Oxford, gives a talk for the DHOXSS 2015.

This presentation will primarily focus on using Filemaker Pro to produce The Online Corpus of Inscriptions from Ancient North Arabia (OCIANA), which contains around 40,000 inscriptions in pre-Arabic languages including Safaitic, Dadanitic, Hismaic, and Thamudic. We will examine the functionality of the database, and look at the technical challenges that were faced when producing the system. In addition to the OCIANA project, this presentation will provide an overview of Filemaker Pro and outline the advantages of working with Filemaker to create databases for research projects.
