Catena, the Digital Archive of Historic Gardens and Landscapes, is a collection of historic and contemporary images, including plans, engravings, and photographs, intended to support research and teaching in the fields of garden history and landscape studies. Created through the collaborative efforts of landscape historians and institutions, the initial offering of images is focused on the Villas as a Landscape Type.
Catena uses VRA Core 3.0 metadata standards http://membership.vraweb.org/projects/vracore3/categories.html. What is a Catena?
A catena is a water chain, a feature frequently found in villa gardens. These water chains connect nature, architecture, and sculpture, drawing visitors from one part of a garden to another, just as a database links together images, people, places, and concepts.
