Does anyone know what happened to the "Severan Database Project" that
used to be at USF?

(nb: this is a dead link)
http://web3.forest.usf.edu/main/other/severan/databases/

It seems it has been neglected, and the website moved or allowed to lapse.

Walter,

If the site allowed crawlers you might be able to find an archived version using the Wayback Machine;

go to archive.org

then select projects at top

then select the Wayback Machine

insert web address

It will locate all the archived forms of the web site


I have used the Wayback Machine to locate data on broken links.

Thanks iwaniw,
It was more in relation to whether it was still there or not, which it does
not seem to be.
It was a fairly clunky site anyway, a little awkward to use, and pretty much
only took scans from a few of the SNGs and posted them together.
A good idea, which could have been executed better, but may have been
restrained by the usual factors of funding and people working on it.
Perhaps a project for someone else, or another institution. Who knows!

I spoke to the administrator of that sight while it was still live, and I offered her some assistance with the project.  I also inquired about combining her data with Coinproject. She told me that the Severan project was a graduate student's (a group of students, I think) doctoral work and not actively maintained.  Although I don't know for certain, I would assume the website ceased to be updated and hosted once the particular project/doctoral thesis had been completed.

Thanks Tom,

Here is a paper outlining the project and subject:
https://www.academia.edu/2394467/Severan_Database_Project_Making_Undergraduate_Research_Work_in_complicated_projects

It does seem as though it is dead, unlikely to be revived.

It had potential, however I expect that the completed RPC projects will entirely
supercede whatever was (now) lost to the web previously posted.

Found this link:
https://github.com/usf-portal/severan-database-project
The information is still 'available', but not on a stand-alone website.
(via FB: https://www.facebook.com/severandatabase/ created 6/Nov/18)

Someone may be able and perhaps want to do something with this, who knows!
