- What We Do -

Educate professionals, students, and life-long learners.

We provide on-site workshops and online classes on the use of modern tools for cultural resources and archaeological practice so our learners may make the results of their work more relevant, shared and accessible.

 

Offer consulting services for cultural digital projects.

We are up-to-date on technological trends and best practices for digital archaeology projects. We provide background research, data analysis and needs assessment, data processing, design and implementation of data-driven online archives, and field archaeology services.

We envision a world where human history is accessible to everybody.

We nurture new generations of forward-looking professionals to help preserve archaeology and make human history more accessible and engaging; we educate communities to appreciate the world’s heritage, by using technology as the catalyst.

Our Story

CoDA was founded by a group of faculty and researchers from UC Berkeley and was established as a California 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in April 2011. CoDA founders designed the company’s roadmap to provide archaeologists, memory institutions, and scholars the best and latest technological solutions and informed programs to take care of our cultural heritage.

Years of pioneering interest in digital media and technologies, unique expertise in teaching and curricular development, and collaborations with academic institutions, have brought CoDA to an international leadership role in digital archaeology, cultural heritage, and education.
