The OCHRE Data Service facilitates the use of the Online Cultural and Historical Research Environment (OCHRE) worldwide to record, integrate, analyze, publish, and preserve cultural and historical information in all of its digital forms. As a core computational platform of the Forum for Digital Culture of the University of Chicago, OCHRE provides support for digital research projects in the humanities, social sciences, and beyond.
The default Start OCHRE link requires Java 8 (with Java Web Start) and expects a 64-bit operating system and at least 4GB of RAM. OCHRE is available under Windows, Mac OS, and Linux. See this OCHRE Wiki article for additional help installing Java.
The other available Themes offer variations in the “look-and-feel” of the OCHRE interface, but have the same system requirements and provide the same functionality.
The Start OCHRE link will download a jnlp (or jsp) file which should launch Java. When launching a .jnlp file for the first time, you may need to associate this file type with “Java Web Start Launcher.” If Java Web Start Launcher is not available as an option, this suggests Java is not installed.
