The DCCD is a dendrochronological data repository for Humanities-based research (http://dendro.dans.knaw.nl). It uses the International Tree-Ring Data Standard (TRiDaS), software library TRiCYCLE for ingesting/exporting data in many digital formats, and Access (MS) system TRiDaBASE for exporting/ingesting metadata. The repository contains all heritage-related tree-ring research performed in the Netherlands from the 1960’s onwards and many projects from Belgium, France, the UK (Ireland) and other European countries, bringing the content to > 5000 projects and the chronological range to 6000 BC-present. The repository can be searched in Dutch, English, French and German, and besides tree-ring series also contains extensive metadata and associated files (e.g. research reports). Participants manage the access levels to their projects on line. The new infrastructure has proven a valuable tool for international interdisciplinary research and for generating research funding. Products of the DCCD project are open source and can be downloaded at www.tridas.org.
